The content at this year’s Summit will not disappoint. Hear from A-listers in the industry on topics that are relevant and designed to drive your business and craft to the next level. Take What Men Want as an example. Many of the top-rated factual franchises emerging over the past few years have been decidedly testosterone-oriented: witness the success of History’s Ice Road Truckers and Top Shot, Discovery’s Deadliest Catch and Gold Rush: Alaska, and in the UK, the BBC’s Top Gear. But beyond gadgets, gold, guns and derring-do, what are the elements that keep males, a notoriously fickle audience, tuned in? What do men want to see in their non-fiction TV choices, and importantly, what don’t they want to see?
