Welcome back to the BAFTA Podcast! We've had a comedy-centric month at BAFTA, so it's only right that episode #2 is all about comedy writing, commissioning, and producing. Using clips from Armando Iannucci's high-profile BAFTA TV Lecture, we ask our expert panel whether UK comedy commissioners lack imagination, and how new writers and performers can use the internet to land a TV commission (or maybe bypass TV altogether...?).

Regular host Dave Green welcomes Andrew Newman (head of Objective Productions and ex Channel 4 commissioner), Kevin Cecil (BAFTA-winning comedy writer of shows like Black Books) and Kayleigh Llewellyn (a new writer and actor who recently won the BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Forum initiative).
