The Graham Norton Show
Series 20

So Television BBC1 07.10.16

Picture and audio post production on 19 x 60 min chat shows for BBC1.

For the opening edition of Series 20, the fabulous Graham Norton was joined by A-Listers Justin Timber-lake, Daniel Radcliffe, Robbie Williams and Oscar-nominated actress Anna Kendrick.

See who takes a seat in Graham’s notorious red chair for the rest of this series on BBC One, Fridays at 10.35pm.

From rushes to transmission master, Editor Perry Widdowson is involved from the very start of the edit and turns this show around in just one day.

Widdowson creates a polished and dubbed final TX master using Avid Symphony for the fast turna-round chat show. Widdowson passes all the audio directly out of the Avid into an outboard Yamaha DM1000 digital mixer, for added flexibility and speed.

The Yamaha DM1000 has full fader automation which is timecode driven from an LTC timecode track Widdowson places on the timeline. That way he can re-edit and re-order the show at any time and preserve all the mixer automation he’s performed during the day.
Post produced by Chris Evans.
