This workshop addresses challenges to public-service broadcasting around non-current affairs factual commissioning (including inter alia arts, culture, history, science, religion, ethics, food, travel etc.), a genre which has seen significant new investment from commercial SVOD platforms in recent months. This trend appears likely to continue as digital media companies seek to expand into markets beyond their core fiction genre.
The workshop begins with an overview of recent successes, challenges and learnings from case-study commissions from both EBU members and SVOD platforms.
Participants are invited to a Welcome cocktail at Cardiff Castle (Castle St, Cardiff CF10 3RB) on Wednesday 4 March from 18:30 to 20:30.
