Gravity Media is honoured to have been nominated for a BAFTA in the Best Sports Programme category for our Chiswick-based Production & Content business formerly known as Input Media production of the Women’s World Cup Semi Final between England and the USA, a programme which was watched by a record 11.7 million viewers in the UK on BBC One. 

The project saw all production take place at our new facility in Manchester, which housed post production suites and a remote gallery, whilst our presentation crew travelled around France, presenting live from each stadium.
