Gently does it



Woodward Gentle explains too why it made sense earlier this year for BBC Worldwide to take a majority stake in the firm, which is also behind the BBC’s adaptation of Len Deighton’s SS-GB and a series of short stories from Neil Gaiman for Sky Arts.

The exec, who was previously creative director at Carnival Films, held the same role at BBC Drama Production and before that was MD of Kudos, says commissioners need to take more risks in working with new talent and the type of material they greenlight.
