Here’s Televisual’s recent interview with UKTV’s Deputy Director of Commissioning and Head of Factual and Factual Entertainment, Hilary Rosen.
This is the tenth in a series of films – The Televisual Factual Films – for factual producers and filmmakers.
Hilary Rosen has a broad remit with very different needs based on UKTV’s unique platforms. In the film, Rosen walks us through the W, Dave, Yesterday and Gold channels for which she commissions.

Still to come in the Televisual Factual Films series, Lucy Willis and Denise Seneviratne, commissioning editors at Channel 5, will talk about the channel’s needs in factual TV
The Televisual Factual Films are all posted on televisual.com and are all open access and don’t require payment or even registration.
The Televisual Factual Films have all been shot two-camera with professional crews (from Procam Take 2 and Run VT) and have been edited as if for broadcast (at Clear Cut and Sky Production Services) with illustrative show clips to make them concise, informative and above all watchable.
Accompanying the films is a new magazine Televisual Factual Briefing with all the headline information Indies might want to make sense of the UK commissioning landscape. The magazine was sent to all Televisual subscribers with the Winter issue and is also available as a free, open access digital e-zine here – bit.ly/TVLFactBrief
