Oxford Scientific adds BBC alum

UK-based prodco Oxford Scientific Films (OSF) has added a former BBC commissioning editor to its team of executive producers.

Lucinda Axelsson

Lucinda Axelsson was previously a producer at the BBC’s Natural History Unit before moving in 2014 to become a BBC commissioning editor in the specialist factual department, a post she held for three-and-a-half years.

Axelsson worked on shows including Serengeti, Snow Bears, Spy in the Wild, Attenborough’s Life that Glows and Tribes, as well as The World’s Most Amazing Hotels and James May: The Re-assembler.

She previously worked for OSF, which is part of ITV Studios-owned Boom Cymru, as a freelance series producer in 2004 on Discovery show Meerkat Manor.

OSF CEO Clare Birks said: “There are few executives in the industry with her breadth of experience, particularly in natural history, a genre where we are experiencing an unprecedented demand both in the UK and internationally.”

Earlier this month, OSF revealed it was working with Japanese public broadcaster NHK on a blue-chip natural history programme to air in the lead-up to the Olympics in Tokyo next summer.
