This frame from the new title sequence for BBC2’s The Natural World says as much about the complexity of image manipulation and broadcasting technology as it does about the infinite variety of nature. Designed by Sarah Grigg and Andrew Hunter at BBC Network Graphic Design in Bristol, the sequence combines more than 30 images taken from the BBC’s Natural History Unit library and artificially panned using Henry and Flame. More than 40 layers were composited together by editors Tom McKerrow and Pete Smith at SVC to form a seamless panoramic view through the natural world. The titles get their first broadcast on Sunday.
