Steve November, Piers Wenger and Anne Mensah are confirmed to take part in a flagship session on day one of the event, which focuses on scripted programming.

The trip will discuss their individual commissioning strategies, what makes their output distinct from their rivals, and wider industry trends in drama, such as the rise of high-end SVoD services.

Earlier in the day, Polly Hill, the recently installed controller of drama commissioning at the BBC, will outline her vision for the genre for the first time on a major public platform.

Other speakers for the scripted day include Red Production Company founder Nicola Shindler and writer Danny Brocklehurst, as well as ITV comedy commissioner Saskia Schuster and BBC comedy commissioner Chris Sussman.

The Broadcast Commissioning Forum takes place on 3 and 4 November at Bafta
