The TV series returned to BBC Two hosted by Professor Brian Cox and Dara O Briain. This year the series included three days of live stargazing, featuring jaw-dropping images, surprising science and unique demonstrations while also including the latest weather reports, pictures from probes around the solar system and an attempt to film the Aurora Borealis live from an aeroplane!Job Overview:
The first major project for our engineer Martyn, we sent him to Jodrell Bank for the week to take care of an Avid Interplay installation integrated with the OB truck's EVS machines. Content consisted of a number of feature pieces that were loaded into the edits for a final tweak, together with items that were shot around Jodrell Bank and content that was recorded on the OB then streamed over to the edits via EVS.
So quite a technical challenge, but nothing that Martyn couldn't handle, and a fascinating series of programmes.
