How it was done: D3 archive material played a big part in the production alongside new footage shot on Sony F5. All rushes were transcoded to DNX120 onto our ISIS interplay system meaning no need for a conform which suited the fast turnaround nature of the production. While offline and assemble was taking place, producers and programme executives used Avid Central UX to view cuts and sequences from home, saving countless hours in the offline by not disturbing the edit for viewings. Senior colourist Jamie Parry brought the archive to life while complementing the F5 Interview footage using Baselight grade. Luke Williams mixed the final audio using Pro Tools V10.
