Fugitive has bolstered its catalogue with two of Channel 4’s most popular factual specials from 2020. The company has picked up the international rights for Bright Button Productions’ "Prue Leith: Journey with My Daughter" (1x60) and Pulse Film’s "Hair Power: Me and My Afro" (1x60).

Fugitive’s Merrily Ross says: “As we grow our catalogue of ready-made factual programming, we are keen to acquire distinctive content that will have an impact in the international marketplace. Both of these new titles cover important subjects: they were extremely well received and generated excellent ratings for Channel 4. We will now look to build on this domestic success as we share these moving and impactful stories from Pulse Films and Bright Button Productions with a wide range of broadcasters and platforms worldwide.”

"Prue Leith: Journey with My Daughter" is an intimate and revealing film that follows the Great British Bake-Off judge and her adopted daughter, Li-Da, to Cambodia to search for her biological family. Fugitive has secured an initial sale for "Prue Leith: Journey with My Daughter", licensing the title to RTHK, the public service broadcaster in Hong Kong.

"Hair Power: Me and My Afro" is the critically acclaimed, taboo-busting documentary telling the story of how hair shapes Black experiences in modern Britain. Academic and writer Emma Dabiri leads the conversation, talking to men and women about their hair journeys, exploding stereotypes, exploring hair’s extraordinary history, and discussing how the way hair grows from our heads can shape the direction of our lives.
