ATF Spotlight: BBC Worldwide


SINGAPORE: Using new technological advances, the series Planet Earth II, which BBC Worldwide is presenting to Asian buyers, offers viewers a closer look at the natural world.

Planet Earth II immerses audiences in the most spectacular landscapes and habitats on Earth and brings them eye to eye with the animals who live there,” says David Weiland, the executive VP of Asia at BBC Worldwide. “Advances in filming technology have made it possible for us to reveal the natural world in entirely new ways.” The company is also highlighting SS-GB, adapted from Len Deighton’s novel. Set in Nazi-occupied London, the thriller is based on the premise that the Germans won the Battle of Britain.

In addition, BBC Worldwide is offering the format rights in Asia for the Emmy Award-winning series Orphan Black.

“ATF helps to reinforce our position in the region as a key content provider,” Weiland says.
