Stars of children’s television old and new have come together for the end-of-year spectacular, which was filmed live in Sheffield and will be broadcast on BBC One on Christmas Eve.

Chris Baker, facility director at the Manchester-based company, said: “It was a great project to be a part of. The pantomime was filmed live so it was important to make sure any elements we added were subtle but emphasised the theatrics of the show.

“The finished result is a credit to all involved, especially the cast and crew.”

Edit 19, which was set up in 2010, is owned by Simon Lewis, managing director of The Gate Films. Other clients include Chicago Town, and McDonalds.
