Many white working-class men are struggling in today’s society – low education, poor jobs, high crime.

Filmmaker Dan Murdoch spends a year on the fringes of Manchester in some of Britain’s most deprived estates. He finds anger, resentment and frustration. But he also finds a spirit of camaraderie among the estates that are fighting to stay above water – fighting not to be forgotten.

Steve Cheshire, our Dubbing Mixer used a variety of plugins within Pro Tools to clean up the location audio, it was recorded in some very busy environments and he managed to bring the dialogue right to the front whilst being sensitive to the nature of the film.

The grade was finished in our full Baselight suite by Colourist Kenny Gibb, keeping the picture colourful but the blacks not too crushed. Aaron Bell then composited the graphics against the final picture, cleaning up shots and due to the sensitive nature of the subject, blurred necessary contributors. The team turned around all four episodes within a very tight time-frame.
