Trendwatch: Putting the "special" in Specialist Factual

Natural history, history and science content - what is typically known as specialist factual in the UK - is still making waves in the U.S. and internationally, but it's a different animal today than it was a decade ago. Here, you'll hear from some commissioners and producers behind the content, find out their recipes for marrying "educational" and "entertainment", and also get an inside look at the trends driving the evolution of specialist factual in the U.S. market, and beyond.
