    Blandings returns to BBC One for second series
    Louise Duffy | 10-06-2013
    BBC One has announced that Blandings, the period comedy series based on the novels of PG Wodehouse, will return for a second series, which will air in early 2014.
    Blandings will see Timothy Spall and Jennifer Saunders reprise their roles as the absent-minded Lord Emsworth and his indomitable sister Connie, alongside Jack Farthing as Clarence’s feckless son, Freddie.
    The series is once again adapted from the Blandings Castle books by writer Guy Andrews.
    Andrews said: “As ever, all Clarence wants is to be left in peace with his beloved pig. But events conspire against him as never before. His incorrigibly rakish brother Galahad is on the prowl with a glittering monocle and a case full of shocking memoirs. Other guests and impostors include a voracious Hollywood producer, a dancing saxophonist secretary, a leather-gusseted religious maniac, Clarence’s frankly terrifying sister Charlotte and - worst of all - the poker-wielding Duke of Dunstable, the rudest man in Shropshire. Will tranquillity ever reign at Blandings Castle, even for an afternoon?”
    Kristian Smith, executive editor, comedy commissioning at the BBC, said: “I’m so thrilled that audiences young and old have loved Blandings as much as we do. The capers at Blandings Castle offer us charming family comedy and a truly stellar cast; Timothy Spall and Jennifer Saunders immaculately capture all the joy and spirit of Wodehouse's brilliant characters and Guy Andrews' beautiful scripts masterfully bring the Blandings stories to life. Series two is a real treat for everybody.”
    Blandings, a 7x30-minute series for BBC One, will be produced by Mammoth Screen and filmed in Northern Ireland together with funding support from Northern Ireland Screen. Kristian Smith is the executive producer for the BBC, alongside Mammoth Screen's Damien Timmer and Guy Andrews.

    More transparency for indie channels carried on Canalsat
    Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 10-06-2013
    The French competition authority has requested that Canal+ show more transparency towards the independent channels carried on its Canalsat platform.
    The pay-TV group will also have to allow distribution competitors access to its in-house movie channels, as proposed in recent offers submitted to the authority.
    Up until now, independent channels carried on Canalsat's bouquet were subject to financial dependence on Canal+ through very opaque contracts and price conditions. They will now be able to discuss conditions in a transparent, objective and non-discriminatory way.
    Greater transparency will also be applied to alternative operators such as Web access suppliers and cable operators, as they will be able to make counter-offers in order to carry those independent channels, the authority added.
    Canal+ will thus be obliged to make its seven Ciné+ channels available, either as single channels or as a package, to other distributors. Numericable is the only operator that currently has this opportunity.
    Canal+ reference offers should then allow the sector of independent channels to strengthen and then increase and diversify the pay-TV offers available, the competition authority believes.
    Such recommendations follow the authority's decision in September 2011 to withdraw the authorisation initially given in 2006 to merge the dish platforms TPS and Canalsat.
    Canal+ was criticised for not having respected former engagements and, on the contrary, having strengthened its dominant position.
    Last July, the French competition authority formulated some ten injunctions to show Canal+ how to set up transparent rules for independent channel distribution and for accessibility to its own movie channels.

    Technicolor's grade on ITV's Poirot and Marple series

    Technicolor has completed grading and re-recording for the latest feature length episodes of ITV’s Poirot and Marple murder-mysteries. Technicolor provided sound and visual post on all eight episodes for both series from its Lexington Street facility in Soho.

    Senior colourist Dan Coles graded both series, Simon Giblin was the online and fvx editor, while Gareth Bull (re-recording mixer) and Adam Mendez (foley) were responsible for sound work.

    The long-running period dramas are based on characters and stories written by Agatha Christie. Marple, which stars Julia McKenzie (Cranford) in the title role, is back for a sixth series, while Poirot, starring David Suchet (The Hollow Crown, Great Expectations) as the perfectionist Belgian detective, returns for its final outing.

    Marple: A Caribbean Mystery will air this Sunday and Marple: Greenshaw’s Folly in late June. Further episodes will be aired later in the year and will include Marple Endless Night and Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case, which will be David Suchet’s final television performance as Hercule Poirot.

    Poirot: Elephants Can Remember
    Elephants Can Remember, which aired last weekend, sees Poirot investigate the murder of a renowned psychiatrist. At the same time, Ariadne Oliver, a role reprised by Zoë Wanamaker (My Week with Marilyn, My Family), investigates the mysterious deaths of the parents of her goddaughter Celia Ravenscroft, played by Vanessa Kirby (Labyrinth).

    Dan Coles graded Elephants Can Remember, working with episode director John Strickland and director of photography Gavin Finney.

    “Poirot aims to give TV audiences a cinematic experience, so in the grading we made the images look rich and beautiful with filmic contrast levels,” says Coles. “In this episode we accentuated the art deco feel in Poirot's flat with vibrant red and orange tones, while maintaining cooler tones in the shadows. We decided to go for warmer colours of the spectrum for most scenes, for example using golden hues for interiors. We contrasted this overall look with a stark and steely blue shades for the first murder sequence.

    “Much of the episode was shot using green screen, and composited later on so we had to take great care grading foregrounds and backgrounds using supplied mattes. An antique de-saturated look was applied to the flashback material, along with occasional defocused vignettes.”

    Marple: A Caribbean Mystery

    In A Caribbean Mystery, Miss Marple (McKenzie) while holidaying on the Caribbean island of St. Honoré is drawn into a case of intrigue and black magic when an old major dies mysteriously after bragging about owning a photograph of a known murderer.

    The episode’s screenplay was given a light touch by actor and author Charlie Higson, who is writing for Marple for the first time. Higson also makes an appearance in a cameo as the unassuming, but familiarly-named, American Ornithologist James Bond. Robert Webb (Peep Show), Montserrat Lombard (Ashes to Ashes) and Anthony Sher (The Shadow Line) also star.

    Dan Coles graded A Caribbean Mystery, with episode director Charlie Palmer and director of photography Michael Snyman.

    “We decided to create a tropical vibrancy whereby you could almost feel the heat,” explains Coles. “In the opening scene we created a very cool sunset infused with magenta tones which looks stunning! We employed subtle levels of diffusion and filtration throughout with the use grads and soft-edged windows creating an old-fashioned 'Instagram' style/effect. Flashbacks were visually very strong, shot using a lens baby or treated with a defocused vignette to mimic this look, and then treated with a green wash.”

    Marple: Greenshaw’s Folly

    Greenshaw’s Folly sees Miss Marple aiding a young mother and son by spiriting them away to the estate of an eccentric botanist, not knowing that it will soon become the scene of murder. Julia Sawalha (Lark Rise to Candleford), Kimberley Nixon (Fresh Meat) and Robert Glenister (Hustle) star alongside McKenzie.

    Dan Coles graded, with episode director Sarah Harding and director of photography Sam McCurdy.
    Coles said: “Different levels of saturation were used for this episode; these were chosen to suit the particular scene and to mark a contrast between interior and exterior scenes. While the tone for the scenes set inside the stately home were warm and welcoming, those shot in the grounds used more blues with lower levels of saturation, but higher levels of contrast to create an almost wintery feel. Lower levels of saturation combined with subtle vignettes were also used to create a mysterious mood, and sense of foreboding when the narrative required.”

    Creative industry and digital sector companies will meet to showcase and discuss the digital future of the creative media industries in Wales during Digital Cardiff Week, which will be hosted by Wales Millennium Centre from June 24 to 27.

    The event is led by a number of partners, including BBC Cymru Wales, S4C, Cardiff Council, Creative Skillset Cymru, Bafta Cymru, Media Academy Wales and the Welsh Government.

    As part of the event, Digital Futures Day will look at what digital broadcasting will look like in a converged, internet-connected media environment. Digital Skills Day is a day of free taster training sessions from across the production chain.

    The Wales Games Development Show 2013 will showcase games and interactive development companies and projects from across the digital media industry in Wales. While Digital Economy Day will see talent from the Welsh creative industries come together with their digital sector counterparts to explore new ideas and identify areas of digital convergence.

    Rhodri Talfan Davies, director of BBC Cymru Wales, says, “BBC Cymru Wales already has an enviable record in the digital field but we're keen to work with others so that we can push the boundaries of creativity and technology. Digital Cardiff Week promises to be a fantastic opportunity for the public and private Creative Industries sector to join forces to build new relationships as well as strengthening existing ones, to help Wales be a leading force in this developing and exciting area.”

    Elin Morris, S4C’s director of Corporate and Commercial Policy, says: “S4C’s Digital Fund is among several strong initiatives currently looking to boost digital development, and generating ideas and identifying opportunities.”
