Banijay Rights Sees Global Demand For It's UK Factual Youth Programming

18/09/2019

Banijay Rights, the leading distribution arm of Banijay Group, has today confirmed a significant raft of international sales for a diverse range of its youth-skewed, factual programming which comes as a result of its strong partnerships with UK producers.

The recently sealed deals will see BBC-commissioned, factual programming from leading UK producers such as Zig Zag Productions, Wales & Co., Century Films and The Connected Set travel to territories worldwide, from Australasia to the Nordics to Eastern Europe.

A powerful series that goes behind-the-scenes of the adult film industry, Porn Laid Bare (3 x 60' and format version) from The Connected Set for BBC Three has sold to international broadcasters including Cielo TV in Italy, Kanal 2 in Estonia, Polsat in Poland, SBS Australia, YLE in Finland, OUTtv in Canada and TV2 Norway.

Meanwhile, the 1 x 60' Zig Zag Production for BBC Three, Stacey Dooley: Face to Face with the Arms Dealers has been picked up by SBS Australia, SVT in Sweden, YLE in Finland, NRK in Norway, DR in Denmark, Canal+ Dokument in Poland and to BBC Brit for Africa; as well as RTL in Luxembourg and the Netherlands.

Banijay Rights has sold Series 1 (3 x 30') and the upcoming Series 2 (6 x 30') of Young and Pretty Minted from Welsh production company, Wales & Co. for BBC Three and BBC One with both series sold to TV2 in Denmark as well as TVN in Poland.

BBC Three's highest rating programme since the channel launched online, Abused By My Girlfriend (1 x 60') by Century Films will now air on; DR in Denmark, Nine Network Australia, RTL in Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, NRK in Norway, RTS in Switzerland, Discovery in Denmark, Finland and Sweden and Foxtel in Australia.

Finally, completing the raft of sales, Century Films' chilling story of Britain's first serial HIV infector, The Man Who Used HIV As A Weapon (1 x 60'), that first aired on BBC Three and BBC One, has been picked up by DR in Denmark, NRK in Norway, Nine Network Australia and Foxtel in Australia.

Tim Mutimer, CEO of Banijay Rights comments, This impressive raft of sales is evidence of the strong global appetite for high-quality, UK factual programming that increasingly resonates with a youth audience. It is without doubt our strong relationships with UK producers that is so critical to our success here. In addition to working closely with Banijay Group's own production companies, we have developed strong partnerships with other pioneering, independent factual producers here in the UK, whose works are proving to be sought after overseas.

In Porn Laid Bare, six British people in their 20s with different attitudes to pornography visit Spain to explore its sprawling adult film industry. Meeting producers, performers, the police and their informants, the group immerses themselves in one of Europe's biggest pornography production hubs where they'll confront ugly truths and complex dilemmas. They'll discover who makes porn; how they make it; why they make it; and who makes the money. The group also explores the impact that pornography is having on the brain, body, relationships, sex life and on wider society. In the end, can the group reconcile what they see with their own values? Is there an ethical alternative to mainstream porn, or should access to porn be restricted?

At $100bn, the global arms trade is at its highest value since the Cold War. Stacey Dooley: Face To Face With The Arms Dealers investigates one unique company as they forge deals all over the world, catching a rare glimpse into what goes on in this little-known industry. The company kit out armies, law enforcement agencies, private security companies and individuals. Stacey will learn just how the regulations and loopholes supposedly prevent these weapons falling into the wrong hands and uncovers the huge role guns play in the US economy.

A fast-paced, humorous and eye-popping series, Young And Pretty Minted is an entertaining look at a fresh new breed of business people. Cyber capitalists are making big money out of online gaming, Instagram and YouTube, so opening up a wonderful world of profit never seen before. 24-year-old Erin is a businesswoman, model and social influencer. Designers and fashion houses pay her up to 900 each time she posts a single Instagram photo of herself wearing one of their outfits. 22-year-old online superstar The Gonth' has made masses of money without even leaving his bedroom. His YouTube videos are viewed by millions, and sponsors queue up to have their names associated with him. And 29-year-old Toni, who lives on an industrial estate, is a very respectable looking, young businesswoman, making good money producing the raunchiest range of greetings cards known to humankind.

Alex Skeel is a 23-year-old man who survived the most horrific abuse during his relationship with girlfriend, Jordan Worth. Abused By My Girlfriend is a thought-provoking film that reveals Alex's shocking testimony and meets his family and friends who share their stories as they watched him slowly fall under her control, powerless to stop it and unaware of how bad it would get. Police described Alex's case as one of the most extreme cases of domestic violence they had ever dealt with. Jordan was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison becoming the first female in the UK to be convicted of coercive and controlling behaviour. By sharing his story, Alex hopes to challenge assumptions about violence and masculinity in relationships, and empower victims of domestic violence to come forward.

The Man Who Used HIV As A Weapon is a powerful documentary that tells the intimate and shocking accounts of five men who were abused by Daryll Rowe - the first ever person in the UK to be convicted of deliberately infecting others with HIV. The men in this film have waived
