News Image
Alison Kirkham, Controller, Factual Commissioning, has announced a wide range of new factual titles across BBC One, BBC Two and BBC Four.

The commissions will feature Vicky McClure, Lucy Worsley, David Olusoga, Lenny Henry and Ed Balls.

• BAFTA winning actress Vicky Mcclure explores how music therapy can help fight dementia in My Dementia Choir
• Lucy Worsley presents a special film to mark 100 years of women in the UK being allowed to vote
• David Olusoga tells the story of a single Georgian townhouse from the time it was built in 1838 until the present day in The House
• Lenny Henry examines the deep-rooted relationship between the crown and the Commonwealth in Lenny Henry: Commonwealth Kid
• Ed Balls travels to America's Deep South to immerse himself in the lives of those who put Trump in power

Alison Kirkham said: :This has been a brilliant year for Factual on the BBC, from our success at the BAFTAs earlier in the year, where we swept the board in six categories to us topping the recent Grierson shortlist with 29 nominations across 14 categories. We’ve had critical and ratings success with Rio Ferdinand: Being Mum And Dad, Diana, 7 Days, Hospital II, Chris Packham: Asperger's And Me among the many highlights as well as the upcoming Blue Planet II.

"The new titles I'm announcing demonstrate my on-going commitment to bringing audiences high quality, challenging and timely content with a breadth, scale and impact not found anywhere else. From the latest in cutting edge science to history programmes offering fresh perspectives on the past as well as series tackling some of the big issues facing us today I hope that these new commissions will entertain and inspire viewers and open their eyes to the world in new ways."
