Paddington 24/7

Mondays at 9pm Channel 5

This new series goes behind the scenes at one of London’s busiest transport hubs, meeting the army of workers who keep Paddington station running. In the first episode we see staff cope with 20,000 football fans travelling to Cardiff for the Champions League Final, but customer service assistant Frank’s plans to deal with the return journeys are shaken by a major terrorist incident at London Bridge.

Tanya, Mohsin and Maria all worked on the series. Tanya edited Episode 2 which airs on Mon 18th September sees London brought to its knees after a pigeon struck an overhead wire!

Mohsin said “Working on episode 6 has been challenging but fruitful, with some great characters and stories. We follow a day of disruptions which is told through a number of control rooms and how one thing happening far from Paddington has a bigger impact on the whole network. It has been a pleasure working with the Series Producer, Tim Pritchard. First Channel 5 viewing next week so I hope it all goes to plan!”

Maria stated that “Footage is quite interesting, as there’s always stuff going one, either a big football match, a massive disruption day or even a terrorist threat, so doing it was amazing because you are always looking at interesting stuff happening in this station. The team is really good, hard working uber creative team”

GP’s Behind Closed Doors: Knickerbockerglory

Wednesday’s 8pm

The fascinating observational documentary series that takes viewers into the private world of a local GP surgery moves to a new location for its fourth series—Farnham Road Surgery in Slough.

Connor Snedecor worked on both Episode 1 and Episode 8. Here’s what he had to say about his experience working on the show:

“Because it’s a rig show, GPs Behind Closed Doors wasn’t too challenging on a technical level; 90% of our decisions were editorial/dialogue questions. What to include and where to include it to get a good balance, tell the story of each consultation, and have some character and variety across everything. While I like more technical editing too, it’s satisfying to have a more purist set of questions in front of you – strictly the content and no artifice.

Knickerbockerglory’s a really forward-thinking and friendly place to work just generally, and the team behind GPs were some of the least stressed-out people I’ve ever worked with in TV, especially considering the challenge of putting together so many shows from so much material so fast! It’s a really well-oiled machine and even though my edit producer and I were both new to the show we went really smoothly up the learning curve.”

Episode 8 will be aired Wednesday 13th September 8-9pm Channel 5.

Aidan said “I loved doing this show. It’s a great team of people I hope to work with again, and it’s been a welcome challenge crafting this thing into genuinely funny entertainment. Over the moon it’s rating so well”

The Grierson Trust Awards 2017

 

Congratulations to Michael Harte, he edited Raw’s “One Killer punch” and BBC2’s “No place to call Home” which are both shortlisted in the ‘Best Single Documentary-Domestic’ category.

One Killer Punch explores the phenomenon of a one-punch kill by examining three different assaults: single hits with dire consequences, but often in innocuous locations and circumstances.

No Place to Call Home shows the desperate housing problems gripping Britain. The country is once again at the mercy of a housing meltdown – a lack of affordable homes, a rise in homelessness. Filmed over nine months, this film shows a whole new generation desperately looking in vain for a place to call home.

Good luck to Michael Harte for being shortlisted and congratulations for all the other nominees.
