“It was a rare and exciting opportunity to talk to academics.
A development producer’s dream!” - 2019 Delegate

Tickets for AHTV 2020 supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council are now available.

AHTV is a one day conference designed to bring together academics working in the Arts and Humanities with Television professionals working in specialist factual programming to foster relationships and improve understanding between the two.

AHTV 2020 will include insights from commissioners and programme makers on how academic research is incorporated into specialist factual programming, plus the opportunity for you to meet and engage with the specialist factual community as well as academics with a wide range of specialisms through speed meetings and networking drinks.

Last year’s event featured a keynote speech from academic and TV producer David Olusoga and panels featuring commissioners from the BBC, Channel 4, Sky and NatGeo and senior figures from production companies including Nutopia, Plimsoll and Lion TV.

This year's full programme will be announced soon and includes an exclusive Q&A with BBC Two controller, Patrick Holland as well as a variety of panels and keynotes covering the specialist factual landscape.
