I just wanted to say a massive thankyou for getting us over the line on Your Garden Made Perfect (and of course Homes)
I just wanted to pass on a little note from our BBC Commissioning Editor which specifically applies to the grade, but is echoes through the detail and finessing achieved with the online and the amazing soundscape.
“… the show looks spectacular. The grade has done a phenomenal job – please do thank the colourist for me…”

The idea of delivering an HDR series to Amazon without stepping into a cutting room was somewhat daunting but Radiant made the entire experience seamless. The sound and pictures were, I’ve no doubt, the best they could possibly be thanks to Ben, Andy and their creative team. Working with them is always a pleasure but this time, they exceeded all expectations.

Rapid Pictures is quite simply a lovely place to work. The staff are incredibly friendly; nothing is too much trouble. They take problems seriously, and deal with them professionally. Their secret is that they make you feel like they care about your production as much as you do.

It’s always great working at Rapid. They’re brilliant technically and nothing’s a problem. They made a very long, complicated series easy!

Rapid really exceeded all expectations I had for the two months I spent there. All the staff I encountered took great pride in their work and the company - they create such a positive and friendly atmosphere. The facilities themselves are flawless; support was always immediate and effective. I’d return in a heartbeat.

Few post houses combine homeliness with professionalism.
Rapid gives both and more.
