The 2015 Broadcast Commissioning Forum offered insight and discussion on scripted and non-scripted commissioning in the UK. Over 350 delegates heard from the UK’s most important broadcasters, with keynote sessions from the Controller of BBC Drama, Polly Hill and Channel 4’s Head of Factual Entertainment, Liam Humphreys.

Panel sessions focused on genre controllers, aiming to give producers practical information on opportunities for new shows and how best to deliver them. Find out below who spoke, who attended and what we learnt at the event.

Testimonials

I feel much more educated on how to approach commissioners with an idea.

Having Com Eds for major channels in one place talking about what they want is very useful.
