Greggs: More Than Meats The Pie

Sky 1 HD and Mentorn Media joined Shooting Partner’s kit behind the scenes in one of the UK’s most recognizable high street bakers, Greggs.

The access-all-areas documentary Greggs: More Than Meats The Pie takes us behind the counters and into the kitchens and boardrooms of this bakery powerhouse. Starring an array of colourful characters from the company’s 20,000-strong staff, this series is a warm and charming look at the high street giant.

XDCAM-DISC_200pxXDCAM is format of choice

Mentorn Media opted for the trusted Sony XDCAM camera range for location shooting kits. The popular format of XDCAM, shooting to optical discs, is one the most popular camera systems on the market today. XDCAM is Shooting Partner’s most popular hire item since our early adoption of the format. Advantages lie in the fact that each 50GB disc can hold 95 minutes of full broadcast HD recording. Productions not wanting to make a leap to solid state memory cards, such as Sony’s SxS system, can still treat the workflow as they would shooting on tape by using a disc only once and sending it back to base or the edit. Of course, each disc can be wiped and recorded on for 10,000 each over a 50 year shelf life.

Siobhan Mulholland, Sky’s Commissioning Editor for Factual Programming said: “This is going to be a warm-hearted and fascinating insight into a much loved British institution. The access is impressive; the cameras will be in the shops, following the delivery trucks, following characters and even in the usually confidential tasting labs. It will be a television treat for Sky Customers”.
