The BBC Studios Documentary Unit offers up an eclectic mix of thought-provoking content. Real-life supernatural encounters that seem to defy logical explanation are explored in Uncanny, whilst PBS co-productions Julius Caesar: Rise of the Roman Empire (w/t) combines landmark history with contemporary political analysis and Disco: Soundtrack of a Revolution examines 1970s glamour, hedonism and exuberance via the musical cultural legacy.
From wedding planning battles in Ultimate Wedding Planner, to unearthing fascinating factory secrets and how things are made in Inside the Factory, and tailor-made transformations for people under-served by mainstream fashion in The Unique Boutique, these are just some of the themes explored in the Factual Entertainment titles on offer from BBC Studios.
Lost Dogs: Live is a heart-warming TV event, that calls on the public to help reunite a nation’s missing dogs with their heart-broken owners, whereas, Evil Genius, for AETN UK/Sky History, is a comedy entertainment show that debates the reputations of historical icons to ask: “Are they Evil or Genius?” Both Formats feature alongside the international hit The 1% Club and others at Mipcom this year.
