Success and creative freedom for producers is inevitably linked to commercial viability, but is there a lack of support for diverse led companies in achieving success? Rejecting the idea that only some companies can make popular programmes and succeed in mainstream TV, and addressing concerns that talent and new perspectives are overlooked, a panel of Channel 5 gatekeepers and producers take a frank look at the industry, the opportunities available and finding a balance between commercial success and creative passion.
