Essential high definition Christmas viewing

15th December, 2009

Be sure to catch the epic two-part drama starring Dougray Scott, Joely Richardson, Brian Cox, Vanessa Redgrave, Eddie Izzard and Jason Priestley this Christmas. "The Day of the Triffids" is a new version of the sci-fi classic and will be simulcast on the BBC HD channel (available through Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media) this December.

Based on John Wyndham's best selling post-apocalyptic novel published in 1951, this epic and futuristic drama is a co-production between Power and Canadian producer Prodigy Pictures for the BBC and was shot on two Sony F35 cameras.

On Sight provided a digital dailies service, synced rushes to create offline tapes, LUT (Look Up Table) management as well as conforming to DPX for visual effects.

"The HD Lab offered a fantastic digital dailies service, treating the rushes overnight and delivering them back to base the following morning" Sharon Moran - Production Co-ordinator, Day of the Triffids / BBC / Powercorp

The Day of the Triffids will be broadcast by the BBC at 9pm on the 29th and 30th of December.
