Made In Britain: Culture Clashes & Revolutions image

Watch This Session

What makes cultural revolution and class wars such fertile ground for entertaining film and television? And why do mass audiences flock or tune into these films and shows?

In this session we will explore the sweet spot between hard hitting drama and honest comedy. When combined and then set in a particular time and place, the tension between comedy and drama often produce smash hit stories.

The panel includes William Ivory (screenwriter for Made In Dagenham), David Livingstone (Producer of Pride) and Laura Wade (screenwriter for The Riot Club).

This promises to be an outstanding session that will reveal the formula for Great British Film and TV.
