Cineflix Rights has secured two new factual series from independent production company Brown Bob Productions: Inside The Vets and Great Rail Restorations. The deal to acquire both series was negotiated by Cineflix Rights’ Acquisitions Executive Catherine McCormick.
“The team at Brown Bob has an incredible ability to produce high quality, access-led documentary series which feature compelling characters and fresh insights into the institutions we use on a daily basis”, said Richard Life, Vice-President of Acquisitions at Cineflix Rights. “I’m pleased they are joining Cineflix Rights’ roster of producer partners and look forward to the success of these titles on the international market.”
Inside The Vets, originally commissioned by UKTV, is a fifteen episode series that follows the daily challenges veterinary surgeon and exotic animal specialist Clive Munns and his dedicated team face as they treat domestic pets, exotic species, and even rescued wildlife. From removing a dog’s cancerous tumour to dealing with an injured hedgehog or operating on an enormous lizard, the series gives viewers a fresh perspective on the lengths the team takes to care for a wide range of animals. Inside the Vets also meets the loving pet owners, witnessing the trust and hope they place in Clive and his team.
Originally produced by Channel 4, Great Rail Restorations takes four of the most iconic carriages ever to run on the railways and brings them back to their former glory – in a first for railway restoration. Teams of world-class experts each restore a different carriage from a different era spanning 100 years of railway travel, including one of only two surviving Royal coaches used by Queen Victoria in 1887 and a once-glamorous 1960 Pullman dining car. Presented by journalist and historian Peter Snow, viewers follow the ups and downs of each restoration while engineer Henry Cole explores what it was like to be a passenger in each era of rail travel.
