Nigel Pickard

Long ago I started as a film editor, then floor manager and director. In ‘98 appointed Controller of Children’s for ITV, in the days of a decent budget and regular slots – good times. Joined the BBC in 2000 as Controller of Children’s and, with a brilliant team, oversaw the creation and launch of CBeebies and CBBC – exciting times. In 2003 became Director of Programmes for ITV responsible for all commissioning and scheduling – roller coaster times. In ‘06 a return to development and production at RDF, and then Zodiak, with an excellent creative team. Currently director of a couple of companies navigating their way through new tech and with Nevision developing and producing shows for the kid and family audience. Great to be part of this year’s virtual CMC.
