Proms- Livewire Prod.
Jan 26th, 2019, 3:03pm
The BBC Media Centre, here, has announced that ...

"after a competitive process Livewire Pictures has secured the tender to produce TV coverage of the BBC Proms......

This contract for the 2019 and 2020 seasons is for TV coverage of the Proms only. The commissioning and production of the concerts themselves remains with the BBC Proms team which sits within the BBC’s Radio and Education Division. The BBC will retain all intellectual property rights for the programmes, which will continue to be shown across BBC Television as they have been in previous years. The Proms coverage on Radio 3 is not impacted by this tender.".

More about "Livewire Pictures" here.

About a year ago, "Music Week" ran this story:-

"Guy Freeman exits BBC to launch Livewire Pictures."

"Senior TV producer Guy Freeman is leaving the BBC to launch a new co-venture with Hat Trick Productions and talent agent Anita Land."
