Science series aimed at younger audiences who aren’t usually targeted/represented by traditional science programming. We have 5 episodes each on Physics, Maths, Chemistry and Biology and compliment the ‘hard’ science with entertaining, off-beat sequences that make the core message more digestible. The tone is energetic, passionate and slightly eccentric,
with dynamic imagery and enthusiastic and engaging VO. Mostly GFX based but with plenty of supporting archive content.

Even though she has 12 million subscribers on YouTube, Lilly Singh (aka Superwoman) is much more that just a YouTuber.

This Bloomberg 50 Profile show how YouTube was just the beginning for Singh.
Natural History series aimed at younger audiences who are interested in nature but perhaps turned off by the authoritative tone of popular NH output. We look at a variety of creatures and organisms that have adopted unusual survival strategies. This is the Natural World laid bare; it is ingenious, resourceful, ruthless, sometimes cruel but always amazing. The VO is wry, pithy, slightly mocking but in a knowing way that is always respectful.
This is a continuing series of 90 second videos combining rare radio interviews and video montage. Using radio content as its foundation, we will make two distinct types of programme; Celebration and Witness. Celebration focusses on a well-known personality. Witness will focus on a well-known event. In both cases we will find unique and hitherto unused (in the archive sense) radio interviews that give an intimate and insightful perspective on the person or event in question. We aim to produce one episode every 2 weeks
