After uncertainty surrounding its ownership, UKTV is now fully owned by BBC Studios. But what does that mean in real terms? And as the multichannel broadcaster enters a new phase, what consequences are there for its suppliers?

In this session, join Director of Commissioning Richard Watsham, deputy Hilary Rosen and General Manager for Comedy and Entertainment Steve North as they explain the changes, share their plans for the future and outline where the many new opportunities lie for programme makers spanning drama, comedy, factual and factual entertainment.

With journalist Sarah Jane Mee chairing the session, we will get to the core of UKTV’s programming philosophy and its exciting new business structure.
