TX provide comprehensive HD multi camera recording facilities, with surround sound and lighting, for the third series of the award-winning BBC period drama “Land Girls”, filming in and around the West Midlands.
For the new series, TX spent a lot of time researching ways to improve the look and style of the series. After testing a range of systems and lenses, they decided on the Sony PMW-F3 and its Exmor™ Super35 CMOS image sensor. This sensor is the same size as super 35mm film and has been specifically developed for digital cinematography. The sensor offers exceptional noise reduction and greatly reduces power consumption. The cameras take PL mount lenses, which provide immediate compatibility with the huge range of filmic 35mm optics, including prime, digital cinematography and even stills lenses.
Will Trotter, Executive Producer of Land Girls, says: “It’s brilliant to be able to continue the story of the land girls and the people whose lives interact with theirs, going back to see familiar faces as well as introducing new and exciting characters. This new series gives us the opportunity to explore further how those left at home lived their lives in the shadow of the Second World War.”
Liam Keelan, Controller of BBC Daytime, adds: “This third series of Land Girls is part of BBC Daytime’s ongoing commitment to produce more quality original British drama, which our audiences continue to ask for. It builds on the success of the previous two series which our viewers have loved for the dramatic way they have told the story of land girls – and their families and friends – in the Second World War.”
Land Girls Series 3 is due to aired daily from Monday 7th November in the lead up to Armistice Day on 11th November.
