UK public broadcaster BBC Scotland has hired Shine Television’s head of specialist factual, Natalie Humphreys (pictured), to be its own head of specialist factual.

Humphreys will report to Andrea Miller, BBC Scotland head of factual, and will work alongside colleagues in other parts of the UK, including Andrew Cohen, head of the London factual science unit; and Andrew Jackson, head of natural history unit in Bristol.

She will be charged with expanding the existing multi-million pound specialist factual slate both on the BBC networks and with international coproducers.

Her credits span science, history, documentary and natural history, with highlights including History Cold Case, which was recently recommissioned by BBC2 and commissioned for a U.S. series by National Geographic.

Miller said: “We’ve built up a very strong specialist factual unit in Scotland on BBC1 and BBC2 with shows like Food Factory, Men of Rock and A History of Scotland, and it is exciting to take this next step with Natalie leading further expansion.”
