“The BBC has chosen Final Cut Pro X as its NLE for news editing, but this is the tip of the iceberg as the move to FCPX is spreading fast across other departments,” Peter Wiggins reports for fcp.co. “Today we have official BBC confirmation courtesy of FCP.co friend Richard Atherton:”

After a successful trial period BBC news cameramen/editors will be upgrading to Final Cut Pro X from FCP 7 for their news gathering field operations. A full roll-out throughout all the English regions is expected next year. The initial ER training was devised and carried out by Richard Atherton (www.fcp.training) one of the first Apple Certified Trainers way back in 2003.

Further trials are ensuing within other divisions of the BBC and, aside from it’s widespread use on The Culture Show, FCP X is about to be deployed for several other productions within the BBC including several popular daytime shows. Richard Atherton says: “I’ve had a tremendous response from the BBC editors I’ve trained, all of whom have expressed surprise at how fast and versatile editing with the system is. Converts within the BBC are growing rapidly.”
