Zinc Media owned indies Blakeway and Tern Television have won four commissions across Channel 4, Channel 5 and the BBC.
Tern Television, has been commissioned to produce three series across the BBC, Channel 4 and Channel 5. It’s won its first Channel 5 commission, ‘Extreme Planes’, which will be a three-part series. The programme will use amateur clips to examine plane crashes, take-offs and landings, and near misses.
Following 2017’s ‘Flights From Hell – Caught on Camera’, Channel 4 has commissioned Tern Television to produce a four-part series, ‘Holidays from Hell.’ The new series will comprise user generated content footage, human testimony and expert revelation to the worlds of cruises, holidays, flights and trains.
And ‘Britain’s Lost Masterpieces’ has been recommissioned for a third three-part series on BBC Four, which will be produced from Tern Television’s Belfast base. The programme made headlines around the world when Series 1 revealed an undiscovered Raphael painting in Aberdeenshire, while Series 2 uncovered a Rubens piece in Glasgow.
Following its ‘Wonderful World of Puppies’ series, Blakeway has been commissioned by Channel 5 to produce a follow up, twelve-part prime time series.
David Galan, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We are delighted that we have been awarded these high-profile and significant commissions with BBC, Channel 4 and Channel 5. The commissions serve to not only highlight and reinforce our strategy of securing long-running, high-quality programmes but also demonstrate the strength of our newly acquired subsidiary Tern Television, which continues to secure valuable contracts and to go from strength-to-strength.”
