(8 x 60’ HD), due to air on Sky 1 HD later this year, offers an insightful and comprehensive look at one of the UK’s most recognisable schools. Filmed over the course of the whole 2012/2013 school year, Harrow focuses on West Acre, one of the twelve school houses.
(4x60’ HD), due to air later this year on UK terrestrial, Channel 5, is presented by Jason Bradbury, from The Gadget Show (Channel 5 & Discovery). In this series, two enthusiastic teams of engineers face one huge challenge. Take an old vehicle and transform it into a mind-blowing piece of machinery capable of completing a fiendish challenge.
Finally, Antiques House
(24 x 60’ HD), is a fun and competitive series, challenging teams to hunt out treasures in the beautifully recreated period rooms of the Antiques House, presented by Josie Lawrence and antiques expert, Paul Hayes.
Emma Read, Head of Factual & Features at ITN Productions, said: “We are excited to be working with Sky Vision in expanding our opportunities for international growth and bring new audiences to these truly unique shows. These three popular factual series should have worldwide appeal as they each bring something new to market. The unique access we secured for the Harrow series – the first time that this world-renowned British institution has granted year-long access to TV cameras – should be of particular interest to international broadcasters.”
Connie Hodson, Commercial Director at Sky Vision, added:
“We are really proud to be working with ITN Productions, launching these unique programmes at MIPTV. Harrow
offers unique access to one of the academic institutions that defines Britishness. With a variety of topics covered and great presenters, these programmes should be of great interest to our buyers.”
