Rian Bester, CEO of Insight TV, speaks about how the Netherlands-based 4K broadcaster has adapted to the pandemic, placing greater emphasis on acquisitions and developing shows for filming in the first countries emerging from production shutdown.

Bester also tells Ed Waller about how the company aired the One World: Together at Home concert in ultra HD and shot a live set from superstar DJ Martin Garrix aboard a yacht travelling the Dutch waterways while ensuring social distancing.

Northern Ireland’s Waddell Media won a commission for a South Africa-set wildlife series called Work on the Wild Side from the UK’s Channel 4, which recently began airing the show in daytime. MD Jannine Waddell tells Clive Whittingham how the series was completed under lockdown and also discusses a series she’s making for the BBC without the safety net of pandemic-proof insurance.

Septante et Un, aka 71, is one of Belgium’s longest-running daily gameshows – but the format, which usually relies on the participation of studio-based contestants, was in danger of seeing its 17-year run on RTL-TVI ending prematurely because of social-distancing restrictions.

Prodco Never Ending Story acted swiftly to put in place a digital interface that allowed it to continue, and the company now hopes to take both the format and its virtual studio setup elsewhere, sales representative Anne Roder-Botbol tells Karolina Kaminska.

C21FM is live 24/7, with a new block of interviews starting at 10am BST every day at c21fmradio.com.
