S4C Installs Head of Unscripted


S4C has made another new hire as part of the creative refresh within its ongoing commissioning strategy, this time for unscripted.

Iwan England has been appointed to a newly created position as head of unscripted. England is a recent graduate of the Factual Fast Track training scheme funded by the BBC, Channel 4 and S4C. He joins S4C after 22 years working in TV production, most recently as executive producer of several episodes of BBC One’s Our Lives strand.

In this senior commissioning role, England will focus on developing the channel’s co-productions, premium limited series, formats and international slate of content.

England said: “I’m excited to be joining S4C at this significant moment in its history.
“At a time when the broadcaster is celebrating its 40th anniversary and is developing ambitious new plans in unscripted.

“I look forward to collaborating with the vibrant production community and building new creative partnerships whilst being an unabashed cheerleader for Welsh talent in front of and behind the camera.”

S4C’s chief content officer, Llinos Griffin-Williams, said: “I am delighted to welcome Iwan to my growing commissioning team as a valued creative voice.

“Well respected, with a passion for great storytelling, his experience and understanding of shaping ambitious and engaging content as well as nurturing talent means he will undoubtedly be a huge asset within the team as we grow our unscripted offerings for our audiences.”
