Firecrest Signs First-Look Deal With Banijay Rights

Firecrest has signed a first-look deal with Banijay Rights, the distribution arm of Banijay Group, giving the distributor exclusive access to our new documentaries, factual television series and features.

The deal will include distribution rights to our groundbreaking documentary series Murder Trial: The Disappearance of Margaret Fleming and the critically-acclaimed Murder Case (both BBC Scotland / BBC Two). Murder Case achieved more than six million view across the three-part series, and has been recommissioned.

The Banijay deal also includes our new BBC factual format The Secret Life of the Museum. Currently in production, the series follows nine children aged around ten-years-old as they visit different museums. The children’s experiences are then intercut with interviews with curators from the museum who tell us the facts behind the collection.
