BFI takeover for UKTV’s annual showcase event, UKTV Live.

The fastest-growing broadcasting network in Britain, UKTV, took over London’s Southbank today as it created a live spectacular for VIP guests at the BFI. Stars including Amanda Holden, Sir David Attenborough, Lily Cole, Greg Davies and Craig Charles appeared at the event to celebrate the new season of original shows for the UK’s biggest multichannel broadcaster.

Speaking at UKTV Live 2016, the broadcaster’s annual showcase event, CEO Darren Childs said,

It feels great to be celebrating all the fantastic new shows we’ve been making with the guests here at BFI today. UKTV is investing heavily in great new programming and we have such riches here to show for it. A massive 73% of the British population now watch our channels every month, and what’s really exciting is that UKTV Originals – which are all made by the fantastic talent and producers here today – are an enormous part of that success.
