Set-Up in memory of Richard Dimbleby, famous guests from around the world deliver a speech to hundreds of guests, live on the BBC.
Richard Dimbleby was a well-loved BBC broadcaster. Every year some of the most famous people in the world gather to deliver a lecture on a subject on interest in his name. Some of the more well known faces have been Prince Charles, author Sir Terry Pratchett and inventor James Dyson. Each delivering a lecture on a topic/subject they are heavily involved in.
This year is no different. Organisers have drafted in famous Microsoft founder and billionaire, currently more known for his philanthropist activities, Bill Gates. Bill Gates will be delivering a heart-moving lecture about a subject he is heavily involved in. It will outline his commitment to eradicating the debilitating disease Polio. Hundreds will be present and thousands all over the world will be moved and inspired by a true example of generosity and determination.
Except, of course, it isn't actually live. Thanks to our fast turnaround EVS/Avid edit facility the lecture is given a quick tidy up edit and hits the BBC screens only 1 hour after it finished.Kit List:
