Making an impact

Whether it’s hard-hitting documentary programming exposing injustice or unscripted series integrating difficult conversations into the story, producers, broadcasters and viewers have been gravitating towards content that doesn’t shy away from the tough stuff. From tackling conservation in natural history programming -- once viewed as “preaching” -- to bringing discussions about discrimination front and center in reality programming, the “elephant in the room” is no longer being avoided, but often explored. In this session, executives will discuss how they approach balancing education and impact with entertainment.
