The Duke of Cambridge meets senior broadcasters

HRH The Duke of Cambridge, President of BAFTA, joined commissioning editors from the BBC, Channel 4, Sky and ITV to discuss the challenges and opportunities in making climate change an integral part of the cultural conversation for all audiences from a daytime cookery show to a prime time drama.

We’re kicking off 2020 as we mean to go on – with climate action! On 8 Jan 2020, albert invited senior commissioners from across the industry to join HRH The Duke of Cambridge (and President of BAFTA) to join us for a round table discussion on the environment, the impact it will have on the programmes they create, and the way in which TV and programming can have a positive impact on repairing the planet.

We believe that the creative industries represent the greatest opportunity to put our environmental issues in the spotlight, so we’re excited to see how TV commissioners will now take up this challenge. How might our programmes look over the next decade? How can our shows help to highlight the issues and present us with actionable, positive and effective solutions?
