In this presentation Duthie and Brown, as duel practitioners, will investigate the relationship between their research and professional practice. Brown/Duthie are keen to maximise the commercial opportunities by understanding the nature of the television business and how programmes are commissioned and funded. Brown and Duthie have found that all too often the academic and commercial world are viewed as two separate entities and through their research they are exploring ways in which the barriers between these worlds can be removed to enable a closer working relationship that has maximum impact. One way of doing this is through internal production companies housed at Universities and ran with the expertise and track records of duel professionals like Brown/Duthie who can help steer projects. What are the implications of this and is it a sustainable and helpful way for academia to engage with the broader screen industries?
