Diplomatic bag: our title sequence for BBC2's Ambassadors

It has been a while since we did a title sequence, but we couldn't resist Ambassadors, starring Mitchell and Webb, since they gave us a minute to play with and real encouragement to do something more than just plop some names on the screen. Also, the production team at Big Talk had the neat idea of a journey that begins in the comfort of London and the home counties before gradually revealing an increasingly jaundiced and ill-informed view of the Foreign Office's more distant postings. Thanks to great producer Chris Carey, writer James Wood and the Big Talk team for seeing this through. PW/JB
