Sue Dando has been the head of The Nature of Things, CBC Television’s flagship documentary science and nature series, for seven years.
The strand is one of the most successful television series in the world: it is now heading into its 59th season.
Sue shared her strategy and commissioning process at Sunny Side’s Science-themed Meet The Executive session.
We are publishing her very thoughtful session as a podcast, though without her clips and PPTs.
