Regions can easily share material between themselves and from London. Standards coversions are done automatically between sites. Also most regions can edit in HD (a lot of, possibly all, Inside Out episodes are shot and edited in HD).
Two minutes regions...

The NC is repeating Southern Rail Crisis at 8.30. No idea which edit they'll use though?


They'd have used the London version, as it'll have been edited in HD.


iPlayer initially used the recording from the BBC One London feed in SD, then changed to the NC version of the London recording in 720p.


1080i on iPlayer on Sky (same as all BBC HD content).

I'd have thought the same editing facility would have produced all versions ? Just send the finished edits down the the line to TW and So'ton via a downconverter ?


These days material is much more likely to be sent between BBC regional sites in the file domain rather than via real-time line-feed, unless there is a time constraint. Any up- or down-conversion will be handled as part of this process pretty much automatically, though standards conversion is unlikely to be needed as everything will be 50Hz.

Also most BBC English regional sites have HD editing for their Inside Out features shows, as they routinely get a network airing on BBC One HD in England as they rotate which region is networked.

However - for a quick rushes play-out, where time is of the essence, a realtime playout may still be used, particularly for HD content which is likely to be VC-2/Dirac Pro-ed.

SET's Polly Evans will not be presenting the bulletin for the rest of the year as she's been seconded to a senior editorial role at TW.


Shame for the viewers but good for Polly, of course. It looks like it will be the continued mix of Natalie, Ellie, Bryony and Rob flying solo.
