BBC Music Day 2016

June 4th, 2016

Timeline Television, a major provider of post-production, outside broadcast and studio-based services for every major UK network provided a complete broadcast service around BBC Music Day 2016.

Timeline Television provided full post-production for the BBC Music Day 2016 project including Ambassador films, Unsung Heroes films and the Legacy film at their MediaCityUK facility. The second BBC Music Day on June 3, aimed at uniting communities across generations, featured over 350 events throughout the UK.

The Unsung Hero films feature people from around the country who have dedicated their time to changing lives in the community through music. The five winners, selected by a BBC panel, were featured on BBC Radio 2, online and on The One Show in a BBC Music Day special shown live from the Eden Project in Cornwall, where Timeline’s team provided live OB facilities.
