Timeline delivers offline post production facilities for The Serpent

Company provided a secure dailies delivery service as well as remote access to edit facilities.

Timeline Television delivered offline post production and remote access for BBC One’s latest Sunday night drama, The Serpent.

Shot on location in Thailand, Timeline provided a secure dailies delivery service, sending rushes directly from Bangkok to the offline editorial team based in Timeline Soho.

When the Covid pandemic hit, the company then switched to providing remote access to edit facilities, allowing the editorial team to keep working with minimal interruption.

Inspired by real events, The Serpent tells the story of how the conman and murderer Charles Sobhraj (Tahar Rahim) was brought to justice. Posing as a gem dealer, Sobhraj and his girlfriend Marie-Andrée Leclerc (Jenna Coleman) travelled across Thailand, Nepal and India in 1975 and 1976, carrying out a spree of crimes on the Asian ‘Hippie Trail’ and becoming the chief suspects in a series of murders of young Western travellers.

The Serpent is currently airing on BBC One and is also available on BBC iPlayer.
