Widescreen Broadcast Group are currently collaborating with Bigger Pictures to create an 8 part 3D TV documentary for Sky 3D and Sky Atlantic (a 2D version being screened in 5 parts in October) called, ‘Britain & Ireland from the Sky’. Described as ‘Peter Pan’s view of Britain’, it consists of beautiful and unique shots filmed all across Britain, with an equally unique soundtrack and modern take on the Isles. The breathtaking 3D shots that the Producers (Jason Shepherd and Darren Bender) and the Director (Julian Kemp) have managed to create are unlike any other, and will offer a whole new outlook to the history and beauty of Britain and Ireland. Using voiceovers from many big names including Alison Steadman, Michael Sheen, James Nesbitt and Ashley Jensen, the interestingly gripping script blends wonderfully with the shots to create a programme that we at Widescreen are very proud of.
