Case study - Peaky Blinders

The producers of the hit BBC TV series Peaky Blinders, and their BAFTA award-winning cinematographer George Steel, set high standards for the quality of lighting and filming. This frequently involves working at height, either for positioning lighting rigs for a range of indoor, outdoor and evening shoots, or for carrying out filming. This work needs to be done safely and with specialised on-site support and advice.
