The 5.1 mix on BBC One HD in the chapel was stunningly good. (As one would expect from the main TV sound supervisor for the Proms)

Interesting you say this, as I wasn't particularly impressed with the mix of the entrance music - it sounded like the soprano soloists wasn't miked in comparison to the orchestra and trumpet obbligato. Having said that, I was watching this on a very old telly on old-school Freeview SD, so I was hardly on the best equipment for the job.

One final question for now did the host feed provide oneway talk back to rights holders so they’d get a heads up that a camera change is about to occur or a way for the commentators to know where the cameras coming from?
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

Is there any news on the ratings of how many people watched in the US?


"The couple’s stateside audience was a whopping 22.4 million viewers across the six major networks carrying it."

NBC 6.42 million
ABC 6.38 million
CBS 4.79 million
Fox News 2 million
CNN 1.8 million
MSNBC just under a million

Not something I noticed mentioned anywhere on the plans, it's not a normal thing to provide on an international feed like that.

That's not something that would usually be made available on a state occasion in the UK to other broadcasters.

Commentators just 'say what they see', and joining or leaving you just wait for a shot change and then leave/join soon after.

The BBC domestic presentation truck is likely to have had director-director switched 4-wires to both the chapel and the route trucks (plus bleeds of open PTB possibly if wanted)

What about PBS stations taking the BBC One show?

Wonder how BBC America is doing... it’s had the wedding and then the highlights show on loop since the live show ended
