BBC Radio 5 live launches same-day TV campaign

BBC Radio 5 Live is to film and launch television ads the same day to reflect the “dynamic” way that it delivers its news and sport show.


A small production team will be based in the station’s studios, capturing the best on-air moments as the day unfolds.

A trail will then be filmed, edited, colour graded, sound edited and aired the same evening. Ads will created by Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R.

Creative is designed to showcase the diverse output of the channel, which broadcasts news, sport and topical issues nationwide.

The television spots, which the agency claims are an “executional” first, will be supported by radio activity.

News of the agency’s appointment to this campaign comes shortly after the BBC hired both Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R and Karmarama for its £20m advertising account.
