This year we were delighted to announce that the RTS London Christmas Lecture is RTS Fellow, Stephen Lambert, in conversation with Lisa Campbell, Director of the Edinburgh International Television Festival.
After an illustrious career at the BBC and RDF Media, Stephen set up Studio Lambert ten years ago, creating a wide range of programming, from internationally formatted shows such as Gogglebox, Four in a Bed and Undercover Boss, to moving and award-winning dramas like Three Girls.
Stephen will talk through his career highs and lows, the challenges of setting up, and selling on, a major indie, and the creative force behind his string of award-winning formats, whilst sharing some of his favourite programme excerpts.
Arrive at 6:30 for a free glass of wine and nibbles, then the event begins at 7:00pm. There will be post-event networking with a pay bar.
