Launched in 2000, Big Brother is one of the UK's longest-running reality TV shows. The show’s concept is based around what happens if you put up to twenty strangers in a house for sixteen weeks and don’t let them leave! We record these interactions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with the day’s recording edited and turned around for transmission the following night.
NEP Group’s work on Big Brother can be broken down into four areas, which all integrate seamlessly with each other:
This companion to Big Brother is a presenter-driven magazine show on five nights a week at 11pm. The show takes a light-hearted look at what has been happening in the house with audience participation. It has its own studio with production gallery, sound, VT and Vision areas and uses four line cameras, six line mics, six radio mics, EVS and PA system, all of which although 500m away comes back to our MCR on the main site where the shows is recorded at around 7pm and transmitted to air from our playout area.
Our transmission area is a busy place used to output shows to air and for ingest by C5, 5*, MTV and TV3. The area is also used to delay shows as required; we have a separate, duplicate area for playout and compliance reivew where ‘live’ shows can be delayed by up to 14 minutes in order to remove non-watershed material.
