Busy day turning around golf shots into BBC Sports coverage from the US Masters. The Americans don't show much of Europeans, so we add them.

It seems to take a disproportionate amount of effort to build a 60 minute golf highlights programme.
We are happy to get involved at any stage of your production process, from pre-production planning, through to final delivery. No two projects are the same, so we always aim to find the best solution for your technical requirements and budget. Our planning processes are ready to evolve with the requirements of the show, and whatever we do, we are always looking for new and better ways of doing it. We can offer full production management, or simply advise on the best way of approaching things from a technical perspective.
A small company, offering agility and innovation
in an ever-changing marketplace
At top telly we aim to design and supply elegant production solutions, in-step with a rapidly developing video market, in which consumers now expect to access material on demand and on a variety of different platforms.
Keeping up with the technology and equipment at the centre of this transformation is a challenge that requires continual research, development, innovation and investment. At the same time that the cost of video production has dropped, access to the market has increased through smart phones and tablets. If you are looking to produce high-quality cross-platform video content in any format, we have the skills and equipment that you are looking for.
Although technology runs through the heart of the broadcasting industry, we think that people are the most important element in any production process. The equipment merely allows creative and talented people to do what they love doing.
Our contacts in the industry include highly respected directors, camera operators, sound supervisors and editors. We can pull together an impressive team of professionals to realise your project.
