BBC Series 16: The Apprentice

BBC One’s most popular Series The Apprentice returned for their 16th series with new and exciting entrepreneurs. We have seen many successes and failures by the candidates throughout the series. All 16 candidates hoped to win Lord Sugar’s approval and his investment of £250,000 into their business.

The series began with high expectations from the entrepreneurs as they boarded a cruise ship in Portsmouth. The contestants’ initial task was to create a marketing campaign for an upcoming cruise line.

As the tasks and series progressed we watched the contestants deal with a variety of tasks. The final task before the interview stage, Candidates were required to create and brand, a new baby food, then pitch and sell it to leading retailers.

Last Thursday, we saw Lord Sugar decide who will become his next business partner. Harpreet Kaur and Katheryn Burn were the final candidates, paired with former competitors who returned to assist them in presenting their business ideas. 

GB’s Involvement

Our line pilot Ian Smith took flight in one of our Twin Squirrels. We rigged our helicopter with our GSS C516 nose-mounted camera system. We also used in conjunction with the GSS camera system, our Red Epic Dragon camera and 30-300mm lens.

GB’s contribution to the production of The Apprentice Series 16 was to film aerial shots over London. Popular London landmarks such as The Gherkin are among the aerial shots we filmed for the series. You can watch the aerial footage we filmed in between scenes of Series 16.
