Unit posts major BBC doc21 January 2010
Soho’s Unit has completed all the audio, online and delivery for the landmark new BBC Science series ‘How Earth Made Us’ that started TX this week.
Working in conjunction with the BBC’s Media Village, Unit, Soho’s only all Apple post production house, was chosen for the three-month project due to its ability to integrate with the Media Village’s workflow, which uses a Final Cut Pro and Apple’s Color set up. Unit’s state of the art editing facilities, including its Final Cut Pro Editing suites and audio facilities including ProTools HD 3 and 5.1 Dolby E, were all utilised on the project.
The five-part series for BBC2 looks at how our planet has shaped human history for the last 10,000 years. It examines the way that different planetary forces have influenced everything from the development of farming through to the industrial revolution. It also shows how the planet is still a major factor in our lives today.
This project follows Unit’s previous work on the BBC’s ‘Timewatch’ and ‘Classic Goldie’.
Alex Finch, Unit’s senior account manager said: “The BBC is known for its fantastic science series and this is no exception – Unit is committed to producing content that’s of the utmost quality. ‘How Earth Made Us’ is a great opportunity to enhance our portfolio and relationship with the BBC. The audience will enjoy watching it as much as we are enjoying working on it.”
