STV has already worked on a range of projects including Ross Kemp Behind Bars – Inside Barlinnie for ITV, Dunblane: Our Story for BBC Two, and most recently, Britain’s Polar Bear Cub for Channel 4 and Lucy Worsley’s Fireworks For A Tudor Queen for BBC Four.

STV’s head of factual, Michael McAvoy, said: “Rosy Marshall-McCrae is a hugely talented, passionate documentary developer, producer and director so we’re delighted to have recruited her to our newly-created Head of Factual Development role.
“Rosy’s considerable skills in developing and producing factual programming that takes the viewers into fascinating precincts and tells stories in a compelling, revealing and exciting way will be invaluable in helping us secure many more hits in the factual genre.”
Marshall-McCrae added: “I’m excited to be joining such a well-established team, who already have such a great reputation for making quality programmes.
“I’m looking forward to helping the team secure more series, some of which I hope will become landmark commissions and cement Scotland’s position as a place that can deliver bold and outstanding programming.”
