Televisual Factual Festival 2017
The Satusfaction team had a great time attending this year’s Televisual Factual Festival at BAFTA. Big highlights were ‘Meet the Commissioners – Specialist Factual and Fact-Ent, what next?’ We learnt what attracts specific commissioners to a particular programme, how access to a brilliant situation or character is always key and how channels are hungry for new game changing ideas, that hit the sweet spot of national consciousness.
We heard Tom McDonald speak about how new science and technology are to thank for why he was able to commission Blue Planet 2 – we even got a sneak peek at next week’s episode!
Will Anderson’s passionate talk about The War on Waste was inspiring and we were blown away by tales of legendary natural history producer, Alistair Fothergill’s adventures on Planet Earth and Blue Planet.
