The BBC launched their coverage of the Euros 2016, which start on June 10th, with an extravaganza of a ‘marketing trail’ – an ad to you and me – starring their TV presenters robed in 18th Century finery, and Ray Burmiston was commissioned to capture the moment.

The shoot took place in the Painted Hall of the Royal Naval College at Greenwich, which with its gold and mural encrusted walls provided a suitably opulent background.  The presenters, including Gary Lineker, Gabby Logan, Alan Shearer, Rio Ferdinand and Thierry Henry, and a host of extras were all clad in period costume featuring fabulous frocks, powdered wigs and acres of brocade.

Some of the pundits enjoyed it more than others.  Alan Shearer made it clear he wasn’t keen to repeat the experience but Gary Lineker took it in his stride.  “I’ve spent 20 years dressing up for Walkers commercials, so I’m kind of used to this strangeness,” he said.  While, by general consensus, Rio Ferdinand turned most heads in his outfit, “he can carry anything off,” said Lineker.

In the clip the cast march forth led by the real Euros 2016 trophy unleashing their slogan ‘Liberté, Egalité, Footé!’

Euros 2016, the ‘marketing trail’, and Ray’s pictures will be on your screens throughout June and into July.

Allez les rosbifs!
