DCD Rights welcome in Spring with a catalogue of brand new programming

29 March 2020

The team at DCD Rights are thrilled to welcome in Spring with a catalogue of brand new programming spanning a variety of genres.

Join us as Alexander Armstrong and Arit Anderson visit six Heavenly Gardens, from Pluscarden Abbey in the Highlands of Scotland, to Cambridge University’s stunning Botanical Gardens. Professor Bettany Hughes returns to count down the Top Ten Treasures Of Pompeii, a city tragically buried under ash, but preserved for nearly 2,000 years; Bettany then ventures further afield to bring us Top Ten Treasures: Egyptian Mummies.

In How To Make…, Materials Scientist Zoe Laughlin experiments with the latest cutting-edge technologies to create her very own versions of everyday domestic items, including trainers and headphones. Dealing in renovation rather than invention, Dr Bendor Grosvenor and Emma Dabiri return in the fifth series of The Art Detectives to uncover more of Britain’s lost masterpieces. Moving on to detection of a different kind, the price of gold has hit a record high, bringing even bigger paydays in the fifth series of Aussie Gold Hunters; can any of the crews break last season’s record find of a 77.7 ounce nugget?

Phantom Signals explores the phenomena of strange transmissions in the hope of finding answers, from a Soviet cosmonaut’s last communication, to mysterious signals of an unknown origin. Aspiring magicians execute more explicable illusions in multiple series of Penn & Teller: Fool Us (hosted by Alyson Hannigan) for the chance to perform with the legendary duo in Las Vegas.

Adding to our catalogue of blue light programming, the third series of Emergency Helicopter Medics follows the extraordinary airborne teams making medical history across Britain, while Emergency Rescue: Air, Land & Sea brings exclusive access to the UK’s Maritime Coastguard Agency and Mountain Rescue Teams, who answer over 3,000 emergency calls a year.

The elements continue to wreak havoc in a new instalment of World’s Wildest Weather: Caught On Camera, as told and filmed by ordinary people caught in these terrifying conditions. Five couples, including superstar CeeLo Green, are also forced to enter the eye of the storm, as Dr Ish and Judge Toler scrutinise their relationships in a new series of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.

We hope you all enjoy these latest additions to our expanding catalogue, as our sales team help to fill your schedules for the rest of 2020.
