CBBC Blue Peter presenters

Posted on February 2, 2017

Started to see the fruits of our TV Stills shoot with the CBBC Blue Peter presenters appearing across the web in 2017. We shot a whole array of images of Barney, Lindsey and Radzi for the long-running BBC series in 2016, covering everything from their seasonal activities through to Red Nose Day and Children in Need.

A significant part of the British television landscape, it first aired in 1958 and is now the longest-running kids’ TV show in the world. The show has a nautical title and theme, across it’s magazine/entertainment format – containing viewer and presenter challenges, as well as the famous ‘here’s one i made early’ craft slots.

Like the rest of the world’s media I went to Leicester to capture the moment they won the Premier League title…only they didn’t…at least not on the Sunday.

Fans on edge as Leicester held to 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

Unlike the rest of the world’s media I couldn’t hang around for the celebrations that eventually came the following day. It was fun to be in the city for an afternoon though and see a tiny bit of a remarkable sporting story.
We did get a bit of coverage for some of the many lucky punters who placed money on Leicester City FC to win the league, as here:
