TV producer and Director

In TV documentaries it is often the case that the Producer is also the Director, and the two roles are merged.

However the director's main area of responsibility is the overall creative vision of the piece ie the look, style, tone and feel while the producer's remit is to oversee the editorial content and the logistics of making the programme from start to finish, motivating and guiding the team throughout.

The producer oversees the identification of key contributors, locations, presenters and the team, as well as the budget, the schedule, any legal issues, and marketing the programme.
