Sky have announced their partnership with GroupM Entertainment to create a series of 10, 60 minutes programmes called Bodycam: Britain Caught On Camera.
Since their re-launch in 2011, Pick TV have worked on establishing themselves as a channel again and now that they have achieved this Sky have announced a partnership with production company GroupM Entertainment in order to bring viewers the latest in observational documentaries. Incidentally, this is also the first ever collaboration between GroupM Entertainment and Sky.
The series is set to be called Bodycam: Britain Caught On Camera and will be ten episodes long, each 60 minutes in length and co-produced by the same people who brought Britain’s Bravest Cops to our television screens. The whole series will be filmed with point of view body cameras to film those who deal with the public on a daily basis.
With the roster of people set to include emergency services, taxi and bus drivers, this show could prove to be a must-watch. It will hone in on professional working in these areas and follow their lives for a number of episodes as they interact with the public and are forced to deal with a variety of situations.
Until this partnership, GroupM Entertainment have been unable to move away from terrestrial television and have only ever made programmes with Channels 4 and 5 and ITV.
Stephen Ladlow is the director of Pick TV and has expressed his delight at this new show being produced as he promises that the show will be dramatic and engaging. It’s eye-opening, exciting style which taps into the British culture allows for those who are intrigued by sociological behaviour have a new outlet to quench their interest.
This is just the latest in a long line of documentaries that are designed to break down the barriers between firstly the public and those who work in public services and secondly those who create television programmes, and those who watch them. It appears that there is a large void between the last two and all of the shows that build a bridge between the two, that allows the public to identify with the characters, closes that gap.
Sky are dedicated to offering innovative new programmes and this series falls directly into this bracket as the camera angle is the first of its kind to be aired. If you are interested in receiving the Sky services, click here.
