The making of Channel 4's A Day in the Life of Coronavirus Britain

Candour Productions creative director Anna Hall was talking about making Channel 4 film A Day in the Life of Coronavirus Britain at an RTS Yorkshire webinar in early June.

The Leeds-based indie planned the doc in two and a half weeks – and shot and edited it in just three days.

It was a ‘fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants’ experience,” recalled Hall. “We had nine people shooting across the country and the biggest team ever of people sitting in their pyjamas at their kitchen tables producing.”
