Michael Underwood speaks to the nominees from this year's RTS Programme Awards in partnership with Audio Network

A lively panel of disabled talent will debate why this is, how good or not portrayal is and what more can be done.
The lavish ten-part Netflix series became another outstanding triumph for writer Peter Morgan and a distinguished team . Critics noted a “startling attention to detail in everything from costumes to sets” and thought it hard to see how it could be better.
The show set out to tell the inside story of the most famous addresses in the world, Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street, and it did just that, exploring the intrigues, love lives and machinations of post-war Britain.
In this illustrated talk, Mike will explore and discuss the trials, tribulations and the approach taken to create the landmark Planet Earth series.
