BBC Scotland is the main public service broadcaster serving Scottish audiences through television, radio and online. It produces a range of TV programmes for BBC One Scotland and BBC Two Scotland as well as for the BBC's UK network services.
There is an absolute requirement for some discernible Scottish dimension to any project. That aside, factual programmes range from observational documentary to specialist factual, particularly history, and the arts. This includes series, singles and feature docs.
Open to projects on a diverse range of subjects in whatever broadcast configuration is most appropriate.

Chemical Media is an independent production company specialising in factual entertainment, travel & lifestyle programming.
Established by the team which successfully brought the Lonely Planet brand to television, Chemical’s founders have made hundreds of hours of programming for broadcasters such as Discovery Channel, National Geographic, Al Jazeera English, Channel 4 and SBS.
Along the way we’ve produced shows on everything from contemporary British gangsters to traditional Chinese medicine, handled location shoots from Alaska to Arnhem Land, been hailed by prime ministers, denounced as people-smugglers, and frequently missed the last bus home.
Focusing on strong storytelling and intelligent entertainment, the Chemical team has created factual documentaries, returnable travel series, break-through social media campaigns and occasionally even impressed our mums.
With Australian roots and a global outlook, we’ve forged strategic film finance relationships with partners around the world and tailored unique content for brands such as Nokia, Tourism Australia and American Express.
