Wildflame Productions has been commissioned to make a documentary for BBC One Wales and BBC Network alongside a number of other commissions.

Connie Fisher, Head of Development, Wildflame Productions, says: “The range of different types of stories we are telling in these new and returning programmes is a real testament to our versatility at Wildflame.”

BBC One commission The Island Keeper (w/t) (1 x 30 mins) follows the life of the new Warden of Flat Holm Island, a historic island perched four miles out at sea, off the coast of South East Wales. He is about to turn the page on a new chapter in his own life and experience his first summer season on an island that is home to the second largest gull colony in Europe, a treasure trove of history, about to face its busiest season to date. The film is part of the BBC’s Our Lives strand.

Amy Dowden’s Dare to Dance (5 x 30 mins) is coming back for a second series. BBC One Wales sees Strictly Come Dancing professional Amy Dowden coach people of all ages and backgrounds, from across Wales, to surprise their friends and family with a performance to remember.

The company will also explore, for the first time, true crime in a new series for S4C. Euog (w/t) (6 x 60 mins) sees popular TV journalist Sian Lloyd examine how the impact of a singular crime can change Wales forever – its people, its places, and even its prosecution system. ​Lloyd will explore a broad spectrum of Wales’ most shocking crimes, “revealing the impact on people, places and even the way we prosecute today.”​

These new titles join Wildflame’s slate of factual content for UK and international broadcasters, which includes Brink of Disaster and Yellowstone Supervolcano for Discovery+, Strictly Amy: Crohn’s and Me and The 1900 Island for the BBC, and Secrets of the Celtic Grave for Smithsonian Channel and S4C/Discovery.
