RED Production Company chooses Take 1 for BBC One Drama

Post Author Take1 / May 30th 2019


Take 1 has provided post-production scripts for the ground-breaking new BBC One Drama, “Years and Years” produced by RED Production Company.  “Years and Years” is an epic saga that takes an ordinary family and catapults them through the next fifteen years.  The series of six, sixty-minute episodes stars Emma Thompson.

Take 1 has supported delivery of the series to both BBC One and HBO by preparing post-production scripts at picture lock and final version stages.  Producing picture lock post-production scripts makes it possible for broadcasters to start working on localisation before the final programme is delivered, speeding up international distribution.  The post-production scripts provided included a full, timecoded transcription of all dialogue, captions and credits as well as music cue information.  With content security a key concern, RED used Take 1’s secure uploader to submit programmes for transcription.

RED is an independent production company based at Manchester’s MediaCity and has produced some of the UK’s most popular and critically acclaimed drama series for the country’s top broadcasters over the last twenty years.  Credits include “Queer as Folk” for Channel 4, “Bob & Rose“ for ITV, “Last Tango in Halifax” for BBC One and “The Five” for Sky 1.    The company has worked with Take 1 on previous drama series including “Trust Me” which had similar delivery requirements.

“Take 1 have been exceptional at producing our broadcast scripts for ‘Years and Years’. Having the ability to turn them around quickly and securely is what drew us to the company and they have done this to an exceptionally high standard with great attention to detail. We will continue to use Take 1 services for future shows.’ – Emily Brauders, Post Producer, RED Production Company
