Countryfile launched on the BBC in 1988 to celebrate the ‘beauty and diversity of the British countryside’ and moved in 2009 to a high profile hour-length Sunday night BBC One slot. Since then it has gone from strength to strength, becoming Britain’s most popular weekly factual TV show regularly drawing in audiences of over six million and in February of this year, hit a peak of 9.4 million.

What's the secret of its success? How does it consistently deliver huge Sunday night ratings for BBC One?

This exclusive RTS Bristol session will deliver the inside track on Countryfile, looking at the show’s development and creative process, the complexities and challenges of the intense weekly filming schedule and the journalism which has always been an integral element. 2016 has been a busy year for the team, with the launch of daytime spin-off Countryfile Diaries in March and the recent inaugural ‘Countryfile Live’ this summer at Blenheim Palace which attracted more than 125,000 visitors.

Join us on 28th September at the Everyman Cinema in Bristol to hear from senior members of the production team alongside presenter John Craven, who has fronted the show for almost 30 years and Anita Rani who joined the presenting line-up in 2015.

Doors open 6pm, session runs from 6.30pm Networking drinks in the bar afterwards

Tickets are £6.50 for non RTS members and free for RTS members (please bring along membership card)
