The Classical Recording Company has always had a close working relationship with BBC Radio and its many independent programme makers. We are one of the few companies providing technical facilities both to BBC production departments and independent producers. Programmes all or in part produced by CRC can be heard almost daily on BBC Radio.
Three of our staff used to work full time for the BBC: Beth Punter as production assistant, Simon Weir as an outside broadcast engineer and Campbell Hughes as a senior group 3 studio manager. This experience, together with our on-going broadcast work, means we are familiar with standard BBC practice and have a thorough understanding of the unique requirements of broadcast audio.
We are equipped to record live concerts for broadcast as either deferred relay or live transmission in conjunction with a BBC link facility such as a satellite OB truck or installed digital music circuits. – [CONCERTS FOR BROADCAST]
Recording sessions for broadcast use are similar to commercial sessions but are often under more rigorous time constraints and require considerable expertise from both producer and engineer to ensure that the required repertoire is recorded in the allotted time - [SESSIONS FOR BROADCAST]
