I'm so gutted, it was an amazing episode to work on - we shot it just before Christmas. Genuinely would have been one of the best episodes they've ever done! I really hope the BBC air it at a later date or release it on iPlayer.

I do think they should at least have given viewers the option to watch it on the iPlayer. I doubt it was directly pandemic related, although Greys Anatomy had to pull an episode that was.


Personally I think all hospital dramas and documentaries are inappropriate anyway, but I'm as squeamish as ****.
Stay Home. Protect the NHS. Save Lives.

I'm sure they'll show it eventually, when they feel it's more appropriate, it's not likely to be shelved indefinitely.

Or they could just put it online. There was an episode of Hannibal that involved a woman teaching young kids to kill that NBC decided to pull several months after the Sandy Hook shootings. They immediately put it online for people to watch.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

I wouldn't count on it .

There's been a number of programmes that have never been shown and a few years ago they cut a sequence out of Dr Who and never put it back into the DVD release

For live shows (such as Early Kick Off on BT Sport) this is what is used.
Recorded shows don't always have enough time to bring back and ingest the media, so prefer this approach.


Jake Humpreys link for BT Sport is on 1w during his live show, they must have parked a sat truck in his drive 😀


Ah - he has been using a Mobile Viewpoint WMT previously - I wonder if it's just too patchy.

Shows which are usually made live or as-live are more likely to use the 'live delivery' approach, but for studio shows where studio cameras would be ISOed and the show taken to an edit and a dub, local recording in quality can make more sense as it keeps the quality up (and edit out delays)?

Something like Have I Got News For You has a lot of edits for timing and tightening when it's done in a studio so I dread to think what the added delay from doing it at home would be like.

If it is done that way presumably the low res conference call can be used for an offline or paper edit while they're waiting for the courier with the ISOs


I wouldn't be surprised if the ISOs were uploaded as files still - after all, all of the cameras are shrunk, so you can probably get away with a reasonably low bitrate, but you could be right...

Don't lambast the documentaries, at this rate they're the closest thing to "experience" I'll be able to put on my UCAS in October! I agree some docus are just pure drama, but a few are really quite insightful.

At school they taught me how to be
So pure in thought and word and deed
They didn't quite succeed

It looked virus related, I was on set and only picked up bits of the story, but it did feature hasmat suits and contamination tents. It was a huge episode, probably one of the best Casualty has ever produced.

If they're not going to air it down the line, I think it should be made available on iPlayer. That way, fans have full choice over whether or not to watch it.

Last night an announcer on BBC One Scotland told us "socialising is vital for primate survival". Having supported an authoritarian anti-socialising policy for the last month and a half, now they're actually gloating about it.

'Authoritarian anti-socialising policy'? Seriously? How else do you get the Rt down?
