Whicker's World - A Taste of Spain (1992)

Concept and creative process

Opening titles for a documentary series that ran from 1958 to 1994, in which journalist Alan Whicker reported on interesting social stories from across the globe. In this series his programmes focussed on different regions and aspects of Spain. The titles used the horizontal division of the Spanish flag as a split screen device and a means of creating a wide-screen effect for the live action aerial helicopter shots. The programme title was superimposed on an actual flag in post-production and blown away as a transition to the programme.
