Vivid Outside Broadcast - Client quotes

A massive thanks to you and your crew for yesterday - everyone here was really happy with how it looked, and how smoothly and calmly you dealt with all our requests!

Carolyn Wilshire, Director

BBC 6 Radio and Music

I loved all the times I would ask a question or for something to be done, and almost every time you replied that it had already been sorted, or that it was already underway! That’s my kinda OB! Plus you are all a dream to work with.
