UK: NEP are proud to have worked with BBC Studios Events providing facilities for the host broadcasts operation in celebration of the prestigious Queen’s Platinum Jubilee over the bank holiday weekend.
Overseen by Project Manager Richard Lancaster, NEP delivered the Outside Broadcast across five separate events, including the BBC Platinum Jubilee Concert and Pageant.
NEP outside broadcast trucks included Venus, Sargasso, and Voyager, providing coverage with a range of cameras. The BBC is the host broadcaster.
The bank holiday weekend started with the Queen’s birthday parade on Thursday, followed by the lighting of the Jubilee beacons. Saturday hosted the centre piece event of the weekend - the BBC Platinum Jubilee Concert outside Buckingham Palace. Collaborating with BBC Events, BT Broadcast & Media delivered host connectivity, and Creative Technology; a spectacular event was delivered - a fitting tribute to her majesty’s 70 years of service.
NEP Connect provided camera crew and connectivity to BBC Studios Kids & Family for live inserts into CBBC Mash-Up and Blue Peter with presenters and Stanley the iconic puppet monster interviewing all the guest artists backstage at the concert.
Creative Technology provided the technical delivery of the beautiful Buckingham Palace projections and main stage LED screens for the celebrations. Custom graphics displayed across the screens by NorthHouse Creative, with camera imagery provided by NEP for the broadcast production. The LED screens were also used for the Trooping of the Colour on Thursday, the Thanksgiving service at St. Paul’s on Friday and the pageant on Sunday.
A brilliant weekend was rounded off for the Jubilee pageant on Sunday afternoon. NEP provided the broadcast coverage from the show, as the pageant celebrated the many years of her Majesty’s reign.
Simon Moorhead, Managing Director, NEP UK Broadcast Services, says, “It is an honour for NEP and the entire team to be entrusted with the broadcast technical facilitation of such a momentous occasion by our partners at the BBC Studios, and we value very highly our relationship and partnership.”
“This was a truly joyous, uplifting, and patriotic service to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. There’s always an incredible weight of responsibility in the delivery of any major host broadcast, but none more than the world’s celebration of Her Majesty's historic reign!”.
