InFocus Broadcasting is delighted to have partnered with the Royal Aeronautical Society to produce a sector-specific television programme that will explore and celebrate the role that UK aerospace and aviation play around the world

Presented by former Sky News reader and current BBC World presenter, Samantha Simmonds, the programme aims to bring the sector to life and inspire viewers by celebrating industrial achievement, showcasing latest technology and innovation, and throwing a spotlight on the people that make the sector a global success story.

You can view a trailer for the programme below.

Featuring clips of and interviews with leading voices from the UK Government, companies, trade associations and other bodies that are at the heart of UK aerospace and aviation, the programme aims to raise awareness of the sector’s strengths and economic value.

It will also encourage a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing the sector - from managing environmental impacts to the adoption of exciting, emerging technologies; such as artificial intelligence.

The programme will be presented from the InFocus studio setting in Millbank, London, and will be presenter-led, with segments from the studio, news items and packages, as well as sponsored segments and profiles filmed on location.

The final feature will be broadcast on television in late 2018 or early 2019 and at a launch event in central London, further details of which will be available in due course.

David Ward, Head of Partnerships at InFocus Broadcasting, said: “InFocus Broadcasting is thrilled to have partnered with the Royal Aeronautical Society on a television programme that will provide a fascinating and powerful insight into UK aerospace and aviation by engaging people across the industry and beyond.”

Emma Bossom, Marketing and Communications Director at the Royal Aeronautical Society, said: “As a body dedicated to the entire aerospace community, and with members situated around the world, the Society is ideally placed to help shine a light on the firms, people and technologies that are already revolutionising the way we will move around the world in the future.”
