Susan Calman to uncover more Secret Scotland

Second series for C5 travelogue

Susan Calman is to make a second series of her Channel 5 travelogue. Secret Scotland.

The broadcaster has commissioned six more episode from makers IWC Media and Motion Content Group – one more than the first series.

In February, the first episode attracted 1.8million viewers, according to consolidated figures, making it one of C5’s top-10 highest-rated shows of the year so far.

The new series is expected to air later this year, and C5 factual commissioning editor Guy Davies told trade magazine Broadcast: ‘We can’t wait for Susan to bring back her wit, insight, enthusiasm and sense of fun in a second run of this lively travelogue.’

Calman is also the voice of the new Caledonian Sleeper trains, making the automated announcement on the service  between Scotland and London.
