Continuing to strengthen its growing on-demand documentary channels, FD Real, Free Documentary, Free Documentary History, Free Documentary Nature and ENDEVR, Quintus Studios has acquired several factual titles from a number of European distributors.
Through a volume deal with All3Media International, on board for Free Documentary History in the US, Canada, Australia and India are titles such as Secrets of the Royal Babies (1 x 60’) and Rome: Empire Without Limit with Mary Beard and Engineering Giants (3 x 60’) for Free Documentary.
Produced by Spun Gold for ITV, Secrets of the Royal Babies tells the extraordinary tales of Royal births, motherhood and infancy, that have paved the way to this day and asks what Meghan might reasonably expect from this next stage of her life.
Rome: Empire Without Limit with Mary Beard, produced by LION Television travels from Spain to Iran, Egypt to Scotland, Tunisia to Greece, where historian and classicist Mary Beard answers the big questions that have fascinated people for centuries. How and why did the Roman Empire happen? Why did Rome acquire an empire and why did it fall?
Adding to the FD Real channel is Border Force (10 x 60’) produced by Steadfast Television and Dangerous Flights (8 x 60’) produced by Pixcom Productions both acquired from distributor Cineflix Rights.
Border Force follows the work of the UK’s Border and Immigration Agency as its team of dedicated immigration officers work around the clock to fight illegal immigration and secure Britain’s borders. Dangerous Flights is a fast-paced adventure series about aviation’s last frontier: aircraft delivery. From far-aloft adventure, to high-pressure human conflict, to ingenious tech, Dangerous Flights is a series where mortal risk is always real – a high-risk business that kills dozens of pilots every year.
