AHTV: Exploring Research in Television


The fifth edition of AHTV will take place in London at Conway Hall on Tuesday 28th March 2023. This year's event will be a hybrid proposition with both in person and digital passes available.

AHTV is a programme of sessions, panels, speed meetings and round-table discussions designed to bring together academics working in the Arts and Humanities with Television professionals to foster relationships and improve understanding between the two. Previous speakers include David Olusoga, Bettany Hughes, Emma Dabiri and Sathnam Sanghera as well as commissioners from the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5 and Sky Arts.

The programme for 2023 will be announced soon, in the meantime you can see the programme for our 2022 event below.
