We provide full studio and post production services for ITV’s Saturday Night Takeaway at Television Centre
Our 10,800 sq. ft. Studio TC1 became the new home to Saturday Night Takeaway in February 2020.
Produced by ITV Studios Entertainment and Mitre Television, we most recently facilitated the 17th series of the award-winning entertainment show in early 2021. We provided expertise in the form of studio management, engineering, electricians, scenic and post production staff.
The seven-part series was broadcast live on Saturday nights from mid February 2021 until early April 2021, whilst adhering to stringent Covid-19 protocols and safety measures. A remote audience solution in the form of a gigantic virtual wall showing 300 living rooms from across the country enabled the production to have its biggest audience to date.
We also adapted our post production services for the series by providing remote working capabilities. Prior to the weekly Saturday night live broadcasts, the editing teams worked remotely, with onsite services being provided at our Television Centre facility on broadcast days. Onsite services comprised seven Avid Symphony suites and a Pro Tools dubbing suite. Rushes were ingested, edited, mixed and reviewed for multiple live show features.
We also provided editing services for the spin off show, Extra Helping, for ITV HUB.
