Virgin Media Television Seeks Applications for the BAI Sound & Vision Fund
18 Feb 2019 : News Desk
Virgin Media Television is looking for new Factual Documentary Series and Factual Entertainment Formats for the 2019/2020 schedules as part of the BAI Sound & Vision Fund.

Virgin Media Television represents informative, entertaining programming with broad appeal, so ideas must reflect aspects of life in contemporary Ireland. The broadcaster says it is not afraid of difficult topics but look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Their hardest-hitting shows still have room for hope and optimism.

They want to investigate the challenges of modern life, track the major changes occurring in Irish society, and capture the nation as it is now. They want to reflect these challenges and suggest reasons to be cheerful.

Of particular interest are returnable “brand-defining” factual entertainment formats and series, with noisy and topical ideas in hour-long, post-watershed slots.

Virgin Media Television is interested in unique access opportunities which highlight places, people and organisations that are fixtures of Irish life. They are open to talent suggestions, whether they are well known already, or dynamic new faces with something interesting to say. They want broadly appealing series for 9pm and 10pm slots across the week.

Are there areas of society that are in need of immediate attention, are there trends that have yet to be recorded on television? Perhaps there are people or organisations that would provoke important national conversations.

For those submitting ideas, a track record of great casting and confident storytelling is essential.  Virgin Media Television submissions must meet the criteria as set out in the Virgin Media Television Commissioning Guidelines.

All applications should be submitted through the Commissioning Portal

The deadline for submissions regarding Round 33 of the BAI Sound & Vision Fund for Virgin Media Television is Friday, 1st March, 2019.
