Every week or so, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK

A new year brings new BAFTA events, so here’s TMINE’s regular round-up. BAFTA hasn’t added any UK events for January since the previous TMINE round-up, although oddly it plans to preview BBC One’s The Cry in New York next Thursday. However, it has revealed a new event for February, which will look back at Manhunt, which is starting on ITV1 this Sunday.

The making of TV series Manhunt + Q&A with Martin Clunes and others

Thursday, 7 February 2019 – 6:30pm
Chapter Arts Centre

The team behind the ITV mini-series Manhunt discuss the creative collaborations that brought the show together.

BAFTA winning actor Martin Clunes takes the role of former Detective Chief Inspector Colin Sutton, who tenaciously tracked down serial killer Levi Bellfield.

Written by Ed Whitmore (Silent Witness, Rillington Place, Strike Back) and produced by Buffalo Pictures, Manhunt is the real life story of how the murder of French student, Amelie Delagrange, on Twickenham Green in August 2004 was eventually linked to the murders of Marsha McDonnell in 2003, and the abduction and murder of Milly Dowler in 2002. With the full co-operation of former DCI Colin Sutton, Manhunt dramatises the hunt to find the killer. The three-part drama follows the detailed and painstaking investigation by the former London Metropolitan police detective and his team, as they dedicated themselves to finding Amelie’s killer, and pursuing links to the other murders.

Directed by BAFTA Cymru winning Marc Evans (Trauma, Safehouse, Hinterland) and starring Welsh BAFTA Cymru-nominated actor Celyn Jones (Set Fire to the Stars) in the role of Levi Bellfield.

Ed Whitmore, Celyn Jones, Marc Evans, Martin Clunes and Buffalo Pictures’ (Doc Martin, Arthur & George) exec producer, who is also from Wales, Philippa Braithwaite join us for a Q&A to take a look back at extracts from the show that airs 6 – 8 January 2019 on ITV 1.
