Blue Planet Live

Timeline is thrilled to have supplied technical broadcast facilities for BBC’s Blue Planet Live which was recently awarded a BAFTA TV in the Live Event category. The programme was broadcast live from three different locations across the planet: Baja, Mexico; the Bahamas; and Australia’s Great Barrier Reef with links back to Timeline’s Ealing Broadcast Centre.

Chris Packham, Liz Bonnin and Steve Backshall presented the live series which explored the health of our oceans and its wildlife, broadcasting thousands of miles from across the planet to find out how marine life is coping in the face of increasing environmental pressure.

Timeline supplied a remote production service with a flyaway at each location with links back to its Ealing Broadcast Centre where the majority of the production team were based.

The flyaway production facilities included vision and sound mixing, a network of wireless links to the remote cameras, a satellite uplink and communications equipment all supported by Timeline’s intrepid specialist engineers.
