Researchers support Assistant Producers and Producers by undertaking research into any subject or issue relevant to the series, using all sources of reference, including proper note-taking.
Research may involve finding, and contacting individuals and organisations as well as finding locations for filming, and making a preliminary selection of suitable material and music. Researchers could also find themselves doing anything and everything to keep a production moving smoothly. Some researchers will also be able to self shoot, script and direct. Sometimes they will have a specialism, for example a science or history background.
Successful Researchers will be full of ideas, enthusiastic and willing to muck in whenever and wherever needed.
