BBC commits to using dock 10 for studios and post-production of high-profile shows including Blue Peter and Match of the Day
The BBC has signed an extension to its contract with MediaCityUK-based studios and post-production provider dock10 to provide the broadcaster with a range of TV studios, post and media services.
The contract, which was due to expire in the next 18 months, has been extended until March 2023. The deal includes CBeebies and CBBC presentation, Blue Peter and Match of The Day (pictured above).
Alice Webb, director of BBC North and BBC Children’s, said: “It is the right thing for us, and for licence fee payers, to build on our established partnership with dock10 through the extension of our contract – we look forward to continue working with everyone at dock10 in making some of the biggest, brightest and most innovate shows in UK television.”
Mark Senior, CEO at dock10, adds: “Our long-running partnership with the BBC began when we first opened in 2011, and their decision to extend our contract highlights the strength of the relationship we have built in that time.”
