The technology set-up, which also includes an Intel server and various VTRs, was pre-built and supplied by broadcast hire company The Hiring Post.

BBC Post Production is responsible for all post-production on the Autumwatch and Springwatch series and it is the second year that The Hiring Post has supplied equipment for both programmes.

The Hiring Post, in association with John Burkill, BBC Post Production, will also provide on-site technical support.
