Absinthe Film Entertainment’s Richard Curson Smith and Jeremy Campbell have a history of bringing fantastical real-life stories to screen.

Now with writer Matthew Broughton, they have produced Orson Welles in Norwich, a single half-hour comedy-drama starring Robbie Coltrane for Sky Arts that recalls how the famed director landed up working at a local TV station in East Anglia when he was facing financial difficulties.

The trio spoke with Michael Pickard about their fascination with such stories, why the project took longer to make than three seasons of Game of Thrones and discuss how the industry will respond to the Covid-19 crisis.

Getty Images is best known as a photography agency, but the company is sitting on a vast library of video clips and recently struck a deal to add its catalogue to NBCUniversal’s slate.

Paul Davis, senior Getty sales director for EMEA, spoke with Clive Whittingham about this latest alliance and how the firm is now proving a key ally to factual producers looking to make archive-rich documentaries during lockdown.
