UK content creator STV Productions has elevated Peter Collins to head of specialist factual.

Collins joined the company in January 2016 as EP of factual, and has since won various commissions for pubcasters BBC and Channel 4, including Tree of the Year, a special program on C4 that revealed the winner of a national contest to find Britain’s most sensational tree.

“Specialist factual has never been more in demand and I look forward to continuing to build STV Productions’ innovative slate,” said Collins, in a statement.

Collins takes over the position of head of factual from Dan Korn, who joined A+E Networks UK in October 2016 as VP of programming.

The company has created programming for a range of genres, including documentary and factual. Antiques Road Trip has run for 14 series on the BBC, along with a further six series of sister program Celebrity Antiques Road Trip. STV also produces the new reality format Tour de Celeb for Channel 5 and The Dressing Room for UKTV’s entertainment channel W.

Specialist factual successes have included Tutankhamun: The Truth Uncovered for BBC1, Smithsonian Channel and Discovery Canada and Swallowed By The Sea – Ancient Egypt’s Greatest Lost City for BBC2 and Life After: Chernobyl for Animal Planet US.
