Jesus: His Life

Nutopia for History

Richard Lace- Huggy

Robyn Wright

Phil Bowman

Matt Lowe

This 8-part series explores the story of Jesus through a unique lens: the people in his life who were closest to him. Each of the eight chapters is told from the perspective of different biblical figures, all of whom played a pivotal role in his life – Joseph, John the
Baptist, Mary the mother of Jesus, the High Priest Caiaphas, Judas Iscariot,
Pontius Pilate, Mary Magdalene and Peter. Each individual takes a turn guiding
viewers through the emotional and epic story of one of the most famous figures
in history, through his birth, death and resurrection, through a combination of
scripted drama and interviews with a diverse group of scholars, faith leaders
and theologians from across the ideological spectrum.

Huggy, Robyn, Matt Lowe and Phil all worked on this epic series.  Huggy who was editing
on it  for nearly 4 months said “The production was of epic scale,
using hundreds of extras on Ridley Scott’s former location for ‘Kingdom of
Heaven’  in Morocco. I was always conscious of the time, effort and cost
it took to shoot the material I was handling. I certainly learnt a lot about
the story of Jesus and the people he came into contact with”

Series premieres March 25, and airs across the 4 weeks leading up to Easter 2019


The Choir: Our School by the Tower


Editor: Charlie Hawryliw

Well done to Charlie who edited last night’s first part of a two-part documentary The Choir: Our School by the Tower follows Gareth Malone as he works with students at Kensington Aldridge Academy, the school next to the site of the tower block blaze, in which five of its students died. Gareth helps students put on a very special show to mark the reopening of their refurbished school. The aim is to celebrate their pride in the community, their happy memories and the courage and resilience they have shown in the wake of a disaster. This is a big-hearted film, sensitively put together and was testament to its transformative, therapeutic power of these remarkable children.

Part 1 Edited by Charlie Hawryliw and can be watched on BBC iPlayer.

Part 2 will be on Monday 18th March 9pm BBC2

Kilimanjaro: The Bigger Red Nose Climb

Editor: Jennifer Hampson

Jen Hampson edited the programme which sees inexperienced climbers Shirley Ballas, Ed Balls, Anita Rani, Dani Dyer, Alexander Armstrong, Dan Walker, Osi Umenyiora, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock undertake an eight-day trek scaling Africa’s highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Jen was actually based out in Tanzania for the first 10 days of the edit.

Cameras follow their experiences.

See No Evil

Arrow Media

Investigation Discovery US – 16X60

Editor: Teddy Bekele

Every day millions of Americans are caught on CCTV. Most people are usual citizens going about their everyday lives, however some are guilty of unspeakable crimes. See No Evil is a ground breaking series which looks at how real crimes are solved with the help of surveillance cameras. Police reveal how CCTV footage has answered cases that otherwise might have remained unsolved. The series features real footage and dramatic reconstruction, combined with first-hand testimony from police, witnesses, and families. Teddy Bekele has worked across series 5.



Editor: Nick Follows

This ambitious series looks to crown the most beloved icons of the 20th century, inviting audiences to vote for their most influential figure. The shortlisted ‘icons’ have been divided up into different categories depending on their field of excellence.

Nick Follows  worked across the series and edited tonight’s episode which looks at Artists and Writers. Actress and model Lily Cole assesses the legacies and achievements of Pablo Picasso, Virginia Woolf, Alfred Hitchcock and Andy Warhol – four of the 20th century’s greatest artists and writers. Co-founder of the Cubist movement, Picasso possessed extraordinary talent from an early age. He could have had a brilliant career as a traditional artist, but chose to rip up the artistic rule book, creating defiantly sensual and provocative pieces. Woolf subverted expectations, both professionally and personally, breaking new ground in literature and issuing a rallying cry for artistic equality on behalf of women everywhere. Nicknamed the `Master of Suspense’, Hitchcock’s career spanned six decades, and he was behind some of the most famous moments in cinema. In an age of post-war prosperity, Andy Warhol’s work, which explored consumerism and mass production, was so revolutionary that while some thought he had redefined art, others believed he had broken it.

Voting begins at the end of each programme at 10pm, and is open until 4pm the next day. The winners of the two categories airing each week will be announced live on The One Show – which will also be supporting the show’s grand finale in February.

Icon’s Artists and Writers is aired tonight at 9pm BBC2.

Breaking Dad

Editors: Dan Knight and Dave Berezai

Hungry Bear for ITV

Actor Bradley Walsh and his 20-year-old son Barney are hitting the road together for a brand-new four-part series, travelling over 2000 miles from Los Angeles to New Orleans. They might be father and son but when it comes to travelling they are worlds apart, with Bradley keen to relax while Barney wants to live life a little more on the edge. Worried his old man is too stuck in his ways, Barney has decided to take matters into his own hands with an adventurous trip that his dad will never forget.

Dave Berezai edited episode 1. He said “It was great to work on an ITV prime-time show with all those at Hungrybear. Brad provided real moments of comedy and the situations he found himself in created genuine drama. It was great fun putting it all together and crafting the show”.

Dan Knight edited episodes 2 (Arizona) and 3 (Texas). He said “The team were great, especially series director Phil Ashton.The biggest challenge was finding the nuggets of reality when the talent let their guard down. They had very clear ideas of what the show should be, but the best moments came when they were just being themselves. Bradley is a big character and will always give great material but it’s fun to find the real moments of terror and joy when their guard slips, like the Skydiving or the cowboy college. Then to build that into something that feels really special”

Episode 3 ‘Texas’ is aired tonight 8pm ITV

Filming on and off the pitch across the season, the series will follow the progress of a squad of female players as they debut in the professional Women’s Super League.
