The Televisual Factual Festival has announced this year's line-up of leading broadcasters and producers for the 2015 event at BAFTA on November 11th and 12th.

The UKs top documentary, specialist factual and popular factual commissioners will be revealing what shows work for them and answering questions about the plans for their schedules. This year will also find out the commissioning opportunities on alternative platforms.

Ben Frow, director of programmes for Channel 5 will speak about the factual that's working for audiences coming to the channel, now under Viacom’s ownership.

Phil Craig, who joined Discovery Networks International earlier this year as chief creative officer will discuss how UK production fits into DNI’s programming plans. He is joined by Turner’s director of Entertainment Channels for UK & Nordic Steve Hornsey and Phillip Luff, md across the UK and EMEA for Scripps Networks International.

Other sessions will reveal international hotspots for UK producers and take stock of the demand in the US. The Festival will also look at how technology can give producers a creative advantage and there will be a panel exploring the keys to success as an independent production company.

Commissioners from leading national and international broadcasters will be available for meetings with delegates at lunchtime on both days of the Festivals.*
