We are seeking a Producer to join a team that will create StoryTrails (  a magical experience that brings together film, broadcast and augmented reality, public archives, digital access and immersive storytelling to ask: “who are we, where did we come from and where are we headed?” Creatively led by David Olusoga, this is a project that will have national prominence in 2022, taking place across 15 UK locations – including NI, Wales and Scotland.
