A Royal Television Society (RTS) Bristol event

This Country is a sublime RTS multi award winning comedy that explores the lives of young people in modern rural Britain, focusing on cousins Kerry and Kurtan and their home in the Cotswolds. Written by and starring siblings Daisy May Cooper and Charlie Cooper and filmed in Gloucestershire, it has been described as ‘perfection’ (The Guardian) and ‘hilarious and heartbreaking’ (Radio Times).

This Country launched on BBC Three in 2017, and following rave reviews and over four million BBC iPlayer requests, the BBC renewed the show, with series two hitting our screens in February of this year.

Join us to hear from producer Simon Mayhew-Archer, director Tom George and writer/actor Charlie Cooper. Hosted by Lynn Barlow, Chair of RTS Bristol and Assistant Vice Chancellor, Creative and Cultural Industries Engagement, UWE.

This exclusive Royal Television Society Bristol session will deliver the inside track on This Country, looking at the show’s development and creative process, the challenges of making a mockumentary and the secrets of its success.
