Britain in a Day

The BBC and Ridley Scott’s production company are launching a new film-making project ‘Britain in a Day’ to be filmed by the people of Britain themselves. This historic project aims to provide a time capsule of what life is really like in Britain on 12th November 2011,  filmed by the people who live there. 

FILM YOURSELF TOMORROW FOR BRITAIN IN A DAY – Saturday 12th November Midnight to Midnight



Media19 have been involved in hosting regional workshops to support people from the North East to film aspects of their daily life, whether ordinary or special and contribute to a picture of Britain today.

We will also be supporting people on the day of filming, whether it’s their favourite hobby or activity, their usual Saturday routine or their entire day! Once the films have been shot we will also be on hand for anyone requiring help to upload their films to YouTube between the 12th November-21st November.


Don’t forget tomorrow, Saturday 12 November is the day to  pick up your camera and film your day. Britain in a Day is a fantastic opportunity for us to create a lasting portrait of the UK in 2011. Record your thoughts, hopes and aspirations, then upload them to the Britain in a Day channel. You’ll be helping to create an amazing archive and your film could be included in an historic BBC documentary in 2012. Get started at youtube.com/britaininaday  and www.bbc.co.uk/britaininaday




We Are Here/Campaign Trail Event

At a special event at the City Library in Newcastle, young parents from Northumberland, Teesside, Cumbria and the Yorkshire regions came together to promote their unique public awareness and peer education campaigns for Media19s pan-European project We Are Here / Campaign Trail UK to deliver their powerful and intimate messages about what it means to be a parent when you are a teenager.

Tommy Hair

Tommy Hair, who died suddenly last week whilst filming in Bangladesh for Sport Relief, was a great friend, colleague and hugely talented sound engineer who worked with Media 19 alongside Director/Cameraman Nick Oldham and Producer Belinda Williams on virtually all of Media 19’s productions.

His contribution to our work has been considerable.  Tommy was such a generous, kind and considerate person with a brilliant sense of humour and an unrivalled ability to make everyone feel at ease.

As a sound recordist, Tommy was able to work within any situation and he was always sensitive to all locations, communities and individuals who were involved in our productions, he is greatly missed.

We have lost a true friend and colleague and send our deepest sympathies to his beloved Joanne, Tom and Hetty.
