MIPCOM Spotlight: Sky Vision


A new highlight from Sky Vision, the documentary Animal Conversations explores the secret world of communication between animals, as well as between animals and humans.

“It will appeal to science-hungry audiences, which we feel are generally poorly served, but will also attract classic wildlife viewers with key insights into little-known animal behaviors,” says Barnaby Shingleton, the director of entertainment and factual at Sky Vision. “With a generous budget, the quality of the production is clearly [seen] on screen.”

There’s also Escape to the Chateau, now in its fifth season in the U.K., and the spin-off Escape to the Chateau DIY. Meanwhile, Young, Dumb and Banged Up in the Sun delivers “bold factual content with a strong appeal to younger audiences looking for gripping true stories from around the world and fascinating but relatable characters,” says Shingleton.

“We are proud to include in our catalog shows that provoke passion and debate,” Shingleton adds.
