Silverlining was set up by Bethan Corney in March 2012, in response to a growing need from producers for help with finding funding to get their ideas into production. Since then, we’ve raised more than £6 million in production finance for our clients through full commissions and co-productions and have worked with more than 60 channel partners around the world. We’ve now extended our services with the launch of Silverlining Rights, where a team of dedicated associates broker sales of factual acquisitions on behalf of our clients.
Bethan has been putting co-productions together for 15 years. As part of Tigress’ Senior Exec team (2009-2012) she created strategic partnerships with international channels, winning commissions and securing finance for Nick Baker’s Beautiful Freaks, 3D (SKY 3D/Discovery/Smithsonian); Nature Shock (Five/Nat Geo/ITVg), Elephant: Life After Death (C4/APUS/EWD), Michael Jackson & Bubbles the Untold Story (C4/APUS/EWD); and Croc Man (Discovery UK/APUS/EWD).
As a former Factual Commissioning Editor at Channel 5 (2001 – 2009), Bethan oversaw the wildlife, adventure and factual acquisitions strategy delivering high profile titles to the channel including Ice Road Truckers, Nature Shock and The Lion Cub from Harrods. Prior to Channel Five, Bethan was a P/D at RDF, producing the populist science programmes Scrapheap Challenge and Six Experiments that Changed the World for C4.
