On this episode of The Doc Exchange, June Jennings is joined by Catherine Bray, a commissioner, producer and writer-director, whose most recent credits include two hour-long essays films for BBC Arts: Meet the Family and Guilt-Free Pleasures. Together they interrogate the theme of performance, constructed reality and fabrication and how this can alter our sense of what ‘counts’ as documentary.


Welcome to The Doc Exchange: A Real Stories Podcast, where your favourite non-fiction filmmakers reveal the documentaries that have had a lasting impact on their lives and careers.
