"We recently hired Silverlining to source financing for a 13 part series we had just developed. Within a week of working with Bethan, she had brought a very interested broadcaster to the table. We are now in production, and couldn't be happier. Bethan has wonderful television instincts and great relationships with the international factual community. We wouldn't hesitate recommending the services of Silverlining."
Ann Marie Redmond and Marlo Miazga, Newroad Media
“We loved working with Bethan when she was at FIVE and are thrilled to be back working with her. Her instincts are terrific.”

“Bethan is a class act on the co-production scene. She has a huge reputation as an international deal-maker. She brings to the table all the broadcasters, producers and distributors you need to be talking to. Her infectious enthusiasm and tenacity are legendary- as is her sense of fun. Bethan will always go the extra mile to make a deal happen. She is already making a big difference to Testimony. I’m sure that very soon Silverlining will be working its magic with many other small and medium sized indies.”
