BBC One’s Mock the Week returned to our Television Centre studio facility with the show’s seventeenth series. Producers, Angst Productions, took up a weekly residency in our 10,800 sq.ft. Studio TC1 to record the 10 episode series, from 4 June to 10 July 2018, returning 4 September to 2 October 2018.
In addition to the studio and gallery hire, the production made use of TC1’s adjustable 6oo-seater audience rostra, our HDC-4300 cameras and the provision of EVS tapeless recording. Television Centre was home to Mock the Week for series one-11, before the facility closed for redevelopment.
Presented by Dara Ó Briain and Hugh Dennis, Mock the Week is a comedy programme that combines the best elements of panel show, stand-up and improvised games with two teams of comedians taking a satirical swipe at the news and world events.
