Kristina Hollstein, Director of Acquisitions and Co-Productions, ZDFe

"Working with Silverlining is a pleasure. Bethan and Sam are reliable, efficient and, importantly, good at capturing and communicating what lies at heart in a piece of content, even if it is a pre-sale at an early stage."

Troels Brandth Pederson, Factual Acquisitions and Co-Productions, TV2 Denmark

"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. She will always go the extra mile to make a deal happen."

"Silverlining really "get" our programmes and offer strong commercial and editorial support - their international contacts are outstanding."

Chris Shaw, Editorial Director, ITN Productions.

"Nepal Quake: Terror on Everest, was an ambitious doc filmed on four continents and delivered in less than one month. Rapid reaction times were critical and Silverlining are one of the best in the business at speedily connecting us with decision makers in channels around the world, enabling us to get straight into production for Smithsonian."

Emma Read, MD, Emporium Productions

"Working with Bethan, Sam and their team has been a refreshing experience. They are seasoned, smart, well connected and intelligent operators, combining strong editorial instinct with commercial acumen and ability as well as brilliant global connections. In the crowded and confusing world of distribution they stand out as amongst the very best."

Jonathan Levi, MD, Content Kings

"Silverlining is a company of several very tenacious octopi. They have tentacles that seem to stretch everywhere and they don't let go until they have ensnared everything that moves!"

Dan Chambers, Joint MD, Blink Films

"I turned to Bethan and Silverlining when we needed some help with co-funding for The Burrowers for BBC2. This was always going to be tricky to find a partner to fund domestic natural history, but Bethan thought laterally and found us a great partner in S4C."

Edwina Silver, Former Head of Specialist, Dragonfly

"As a buyer you always want to be on top of things. Be informed, not just on what’s out there, but also on what’s coming. Silverlining exactly does that. And once we find something we like, it’s a smooth operation to work with them!"
