At BDH we made some pretty delicious graphics for this series on the chemistry of food.
Michael Mosley and James Wong reveal the physics, chemistry and biology hidden inside our food. They travel the world in a culinary adventure to search for the origins of our favourite foods and using specialist photography and CGI, they take us on a journey inside the most sumptuous food, right down to the molecular level.
You can see a promo here featuring some of the work we did.
Watch out for the tongue and tastebud sequences ;-).
9pm Friday 24th February (This evening) BBC2.
You can see the full list of nominees here.
Excellent work and congratulations to the rest of Team BDH. The final result was a perfect blend of many peoples work, modelling, rigging, sculpting, rendering, lighting and compositing with the BDH signature analogue elements.
Fingers crossed for the 28th.
(You know, it’s the one with all the babies.)
Reminder: “War of Words: Soldier Poets of the Somme” for which we made the poetry animations, repeated BBC4 9pm Sunday 3rd July in commemoration of #somme100 http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04pw01r
Do you like maps? We like maps. We made some maps for #WalkingTheHimalayas Channel 4 8pm tonight http://bit.ly/1YJT5Xa
So we went up to the London Hilton yesterday as we got the nomination for best content graphics at the National Royal Television Society awards for our work on War of Words: Soldier Poets of the Somme. We were up against Doctor Who (although why that wasn’t submitted into the effects category I needed explaining to me), and Sports Personality of the Year, the latter of which won out.
It’s a crazy process sometimes because you try not to take it too seriously, and when something that is so completely different to your work does win, that becomes easier.
We are still so very proud of the work we did, it was a once in a life time job, and a marvellous team effort from Hugh Cowling, Libby Redden, John Durrant, Tim Marriott and Steve Burrell.
I’m still working out what this site is for, and I have had it for nearly ten years now. I just want a space that is mine where I can put stuff on my own terms. Also build up a resource and life record of sorts. That’s what these really long posts are for in effect. My ability to write anything was slightly thrown by the events of the last few weeks I have to admit. But it is in times like these that the world need more art not less. So let’s keep going, and communicate and resolve.

Edit: Unfortunately lost out to super slick Sports Personality of the Year. Had a splendid time, though. Met lot’s of nice people. Kept it classy. And we all got home safely, always a bonus. Thanks for all the good luck messages. x #EveryonesAWinner
At BDH I was part of the team that worked on The Countdown To Life, a three part series produced by BBC Science in association with the Open University, exploring some of the latest research into understanding of human development, from conception to birth. With a complex pipeline, an imaginative and groundbreaking approach and with an array of the latest technology and software, the BDH team produced hundreds of shots of spell binding imagery illustrating the remarkable transformations that take place during those early stages.
Episode One transmits tonight (Monday 4th September 2015) on BBC2 and will subsequently be available on the iPlayer.
