The Festival and Talent Scheme Stings

To celebrate the Festival’s 40th birthday and 25 years of the Talent Schemes, we created 6 short stings that were played throughout the Edinburgh TV Festival this year.

Celebrating the Festival in all it’s glory, the Festival stings feature prominent figures from our committees and long-standing fans of the Festival who recount their favourite speeches, their best (worst) place to end up in and their most memorable hangover from the last 40 years.

Continuing the celebration, we mark 25 years of TV talent through our Talent stings that encapsulate the spirit of starting out by combining some of TV’s brightest players to find out what was their first job, their most embarrassing mistake or the best qualities needed to make it in television. 

Need not fear if you missed it, all 6 stings can be watched here:
