Media Business Podcast #7: Edinburgh TV Festival 2019

In a special edition of the Media Business Podcast from this year’s Edinburgh Television Festival, podcast host and chief executive officer of Media Business Insight, Conor Dignam, looks at the best of the festival’s commissioning panels, to help indies get the right programme idea to the right people.

Recorded over the course of the festival, the podcast features insights from Charlotte Moore (BBC1/pictured), Ben Frow (Channel 5), Georgia Brown (Amazon), Ian Katz (Channel 4) and Kevin Lygo (ITV).


Each commissioner reveals what’s on their commissioning wish list, and casts a look back over the past year’s successes and failures.


Also offering their insight into the current commissioning landscape are Alexandra Zeevalkink, managing editor and Hannah Bowler, senior media researcher from the Commissioner Index.
