UK distributor Indigo Film and Television has inked factual deals with free and pay TV broadcasters in Australia.

Pay TV firm Foxtel has acquired twelve-part series Secret Museums. The half-hour show follows Professor Ronald Hutton as he explores curious and bizarre objects housed in Britain’s ‘secret’ museums.
