19 UK crew boarded a cruise ship at Southampton to rig and de-rig the set designed for shooting the program at sea en route to Barcelona. It took 4,536 man hours to complete and all the while in the midst of hundreds of regular paying passengers. At Barcelona, the crew was reinforced by 9 of our Barcelona crew to complete the final de-rig over 2,016 man hours over 2 days.
What an absolute triumph!
I genuinely cannot begin to express my gratitude for every single person, whether here in Barcelona, or in London, for a truly spectacular series. And last nights show exceeded every expectation, breaking new ground for what's possible and the culmination of months and months of work.
To say I'm proud is an understatement. My eyes genuinely pricked with tears - and that was just the open.... You have truly built a show that radiates pure joy and happiness from the moment it begins to the very last glorious second.
Congratulations everyone. The best creative experience I could have ever imagined. With the very, very best in front of the camera, and behind it.
