Listen to BAFTA's Finding The Funny Masterclass

A recent BAFTA Guru Live event saw three comedy professionals sharing their experiences of creating those all-important laughs and bringing their projects to our screens.

Lucie Cave interviewed Lucy Lumsden, the former Sky commissioner who now runs Yellow Door Productions; Nida Manzoor, the creator of Lady Parts; and Diane Morgan, the star of many TV shows, including Cunk On Britain and forthcoming sitcom The Cockfields.

The discussion covers topics including the importance of inventing characters first, the benefits of creative partnerships, why it's a good idea to have writers on set, and what producers are looking for.
