BBC Worldwide announces its Mipcom factual slate

MUMBAI: BBC Worldwide has announced its first pre-sales of Brazil with Michael Palin to a raft of broadcasters, ahead of next month?s television trade event Mipcom 2012 in Cannes, France.

The travel documentary has been licensed to ABC (Australia), RTL Pay (Germany), VRT (Belgium), Czech TV, Media Entertainment?s pan-Eastern European feed, the VPRO (Holland), Yle (Finland), R?V (Iceland), NRK (Norway) and RTV (Slovenia).

Also on BBC Worldwide?s factual slate for Mipcom is Nigellissima, to be launched by Nigella Lawson in Cannes. During her first ever visit to Mipcom, Nigella will unveil her take on Italian cooking, inspired by a period spent living in Florence.

BBC Worldwide?s Director of Factual Mark Reynolds said, "Michael is a distinguished broadcaster with fans all over the world, so we expect these sales to be the first of many. Similarly, Nigella?s programmes have a proven global appeal, and it?s a real thrill to have her joining us at MIPCOM. These two top-quality titles are great examples of the range in our factual slate."

Other BBC Worldwide titles new for Mipcom cover science, natural history, lifestyle and factual entertainment. New documentary ?Space Dive? follows elite base-jumper Felix Baumgartner as he attempts freefalling from 125,000 feet ? the biggest leap ever taken. In ?Wonders Of Life?, Professor Brian Cox explains how a few fundamental laws gave birth to all life in the universe, and another landmark science series, Generation Earth, uses state-of-the-art visuals to showcase the extraordinary engineering feats that have transformed the Earth.

The latest title from the BBC?s acclaimed Natural History Unit is ?Wild Arabia?, examining Arabia?s landscapes and colourful creatures, and the remarkable people who have made the Arabian Peninsula their home. Buyers can also check out factual entertainment offering ?Chef Race? from Jamie Oliver?s Fresh One Productions, in which 16 chefs, eight Brits and eight Americans journey across the US, tackling culinary challenges along the way.
