RTS Futures turned the spotlight on TV’s diversity – or lack of it – at its final event of the year where a panel of young Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) talent revealed their struggles and triumphs in the industry.
The panel was drawn from Broadcast’s 26 BAME Hot Shots of 2015, which the magazine announced in August.

Execs from top shows that included The Apprentice, Educating Cardiff and Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway were grilled in a series of three-minute dates by a young audience eager to get in and on in telly.
“There are opportunities in documentaries – it feels like an exciting time. There are many more documentary series now compared to when I started,” said producer/director Nicola Brown, whose credits include Channel 4 shows The Secret Life of Four Year Olds and Educating Cardiff.
