Distributor All3Media International has inked a deal for a raft of factual content headed to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), including Travel Man: 48 Hours in… (pictured).

The deal includes 18 hours of the North One series, which follows director, author and actor Richard Ayoade as he takes off to exciting locations with his famous friends.

Travel Man: 48 Hours in… was produced for Channel 4 in the UK (36 x 30 minutes and 3 x 1 hour) and will air in Canada via the CBC Gem streaming service.

CBC picked up the Raw TV documentary Bollywood: The World’s Biggest Film Industry (2 x 1 hour) for its documentary Channel. Produced for BBC2, the series sees Bollywood obsessive Anita Rani uncover how the massive industry works.

Also in the deal, the Canadian public broadcaster picked up Hansala Productions’ Meghan & Harry: A Royal Baby Story, a one-hour special for TLC in the U.S. that focuses on the latest member of the British aristocracy; as well as Spun Gold TV’s one-hour special Secrets of the Royal Babies, produced for ITV in the UK.

Also, CBC’s French-language network, Radio Canada, picked up Drowning in Plastic (1 x 90 minutes, 2 x 1 hour), Raw TV’s award-winning doc for BBC1 that follows science and wildlife presenter Liz Bonnin as she investigates the global environmental impact of marine plastic pollution.
