BBC Studios Hires for Drama Series & Serials


Radford Neville, a former executive producer at Left Bank Pictures, is joining BBC Studios as the head of production for drama series and serials.

Radford takes up his post in September and will be working across a portfolio of BBC Studios’ drama series and serials that includes Our Girl, Doctor Who, Silent Witness and Luther. Previously, Radford was an assistant director on dramas such as Jane Eyre, Ashes to Ashes and Spooks for the BBC, Cracker and Hornblower for ITV and Britz for Channel 4 before becoming a producer, working for such indies as Left Bank, Kudos, Working Title and Big Talk, as well as directly for the BBC (The Game, EastEnders). Radford also executive produced seasons four and five of ITV’s DCI Banks for Left Bank Pictures.

Nick Betts, the director of scripted at BBC Studios, said: “I am absolutely thrilled that Radford will be joining BBC Studios. His extensive experience working across a broad range of roles on many brilliant dramas will be a huge asset, given the scale and volume of shows he’ll be looking after on our series and serials slate.”

Radford added: “I’m excited to be joining BBC Studios at the beginning of its journey into the commercial world and really looking forward to working on such a varied and impressive slate of shows.”
