Peter Hamilton, ex-CBS exec turned TV consultant has just launched a new blog documentarytelevision.com. A regular on the conference panel circuit, Peter shares his knowledge of Discovery network budgets in one of his first posts. For example:
Discovery’s budgets range from $250 per hour for a low budget programme to $1,500 to a showcase programme. He also gives figures for TLC, Animal Planet and Health (soon to be rebranded OWN).
Future posts will detail budgets from Scripps Networks, AETN, Nat Geo Channels, Smithsonian Channel, Canadian Channels, BBC, France, Germany, PBS, Arte etc.
