Great British Bake Off Trailer Salutes the ‘Diverse and Passionate Bakers of Britain’

Channel 4’s launch film for the 2019 series unites the nation to the tune of The Beatles’ track ‘All Together Now’

Great British Bake Off Trailer Salutes the ‘Diverse and Passionate Bakers of Britain’
As the egg timer counts down to the start of the brand-new series of The Great British Bake Off, Channel 4 has revealed an uplifting campaign that celebrates the show uniting the nation through baking.  

Launching with a feel-good trailer set against the backdrop of The Beatles’ track ‘All Together Now’, the film pays homage to the fact that baking brings people together and takes the audience on a joyful, colourful and typically eccentric journey. It takes inspiration from the baking fever that grips the nation and shows shoppers frantically clearing the aisles of baking ingredients, causing chaos at supermarkets and even the stock market to rise!

We’ll also see some creative and unique twists on how people make and enjoy their favourite baked goods. There’s even a special cameo from Sesame Street’s cookie connoisseur the Cookie Monster!

Commissioned by Channel 4 Marketing, the film has been created and produced by Channel 4’s award-winning in-house creative team, 4Creative, and directed by Alex Boutell. It will air on Tuesday, July 30th at approximately 8pm on Channel 4 and will be accompanied by press cover wraps, posters, radio spot ads and social media activity that will go live nearer to the show’s transmission later this summer.

James Walker, Channel 4 controller of marketing and media, said: “The effect the Great British Bake Off has on the nation is undeniable. The idea for our creative brings together the show’s ability to entertain millions of viewers and also to inspire and energise them into attempting their very own baked showstoppers. From the quirky and fun take on bakers across the nation, the inclusion of a Beatles track to an appearance from the Cookie Monster, 4Creative have produced all the right ingredients for a great campaign.”

Chris Wood, Acting Head of 4Creative, said: “In previous years we’ve used our big Bake Off launch film to celebrate the nation’s collective love of bakes and cakes. This year we wanted to shift the focus to the people behind the bakes, giving a voice to the diverse and passionate bakers of Britain, a nation blessed with a legacy of rich regional baking traditions, culinary creativity and a universal willingness to give it a go.”

The tenth series of the multi-award-winning show will air later this year. The ninth series, which aired in 2018, continued to be the biggest title on Channel 4, increasing audience share across all audiences particularly 16-34 viewers (8.9m average / 35.4%).
