Celtic Formats Pilot Scheme 2016/17

21 November 2016


For the second year, BBC ALBA, S4C and TG4 are pleased to be working together on a Celtic Formats Scheme. Ideas are invited for an original, unscripted factual entertainment format that taps into the zeitgeist and will appeal across the Celtic nations and beyond.

Funding from MG ALBA, S4C and TG4 totalling £15,000 is on offer with the aim of developing a pilot that can be produced in the Celtic nations independently and further afield.

Iseabail Mactaggart, Director of Strategy and Partnership for MG ALBA said: “We are ambitious for Gaelic broadcasting and for our suppliers and this scheme allows us the space to create a new format and to collaborate with other broadcasters and markets”.
