CBBC’s Horrible Histories was the subject of RTS London’s latest production focus in early November – with a team of creatives from producers Lion Television explaining how they put together the award-winning show.
Sky 1 has released a trailer for family-friendly comedy Yonderland, which contains the first footage of Stephen Fry’s new character, Cuddly Dick.
The programme is set in a magical, madcap world populated by wizards and elves.
Cuddly Dick is a former elder who returns to Yonderland having been imprisoned for years by the now-dead Imperatrix.
Cuddly Dick is a charming eccentric who lives to spread love and kindness.
There was a great deal of quiet satisfaction across the British production sector when Jane Turton was named Chief Executive of All3Media back in February. The steely, 53-year-old Scot had triumphed over external candidates following a five-month, global search by its new US owners, hard-driving Discovery Communications and Liberty Global, who paid around £550m for this important producer.
