Merle Nygate - My background

script editing and development

I script edited Hood, 2015 winner of BBC's best non-broadcast audio drama as well as two bronzes at the New York Radio Festival. Previously I developed a factual entertainment project with Films of Record and script edited Blast Films' The Queen for Channel 4 and the third of Sky TV's Terry Pratchett adaptations, Going Postal.

Before that I assessed sitcom, comedy drama series and full-length features for BBC Comedy Commissioning. During that time, I also script edited BAFTA-winner A Very British Sex Scandal for Blast, Blackbeard, a major factual drama for Dangerous Films transmitted on BBC1, wrote another two-hour factual drama about William the Marshal, a medieval knight for Pro-Sieben and a further factual drama for the Smithsonian Channel.

I am skilled at developing ideas from concept through script to production across several different genres with individual writers and teams.  I am also a strong public speaker.
