BBCONE-NI-TRAIL-BLUEPRINT-END-08-25MAR.jpgI am delighted to report that Blueprint, BBC Northern Ireland's TV natural history series, which was broadcast early last year, has been shortlisted in the Celtic Film and Television Awards in the Best Factual Series category. This is terrific news for all of us who worked on the series. The Blueprint team put in many hundreds of hours of work from the research stage, through the writing stage, to filming, post-production graphics, an original score, and so much more. This was one of the biggest projects ever attempted by BBC Northern Ireland, and I can't possibly name everyone involved; but many congratulations to the very talented group of people who made this happen. None of us will every forget this project. I will particularly never forget been lashed to the deck of a Trent Class lifeboat to deliver a piece to camera in a force 10 gale with the series producer directing the ship's pilot to aim for bigger waves. Many congratulations to that same series producer Natalie Maynes, who brought all the elements of this enormous project together quite brilliantly.
