Go Behind The Scenes Of Award-Winning TV Shows At This Free Exhibition

Alex Landon Alex Landon - Editor


Killing Eve, The Favourite, and 12 Years A Slave all feature in BAFTA: Behind the Screens.

We live for a sweet hit of behind the scenes action, so the arrival of BAFTA: Behind the Screens on September 17th is right up our street. Delving into the creative process behind some of the UK’s best TV shows and films, the new exhibition is a treasure trove of costumes, scripts, models, and audio visual displays, all connected to films which have been honoured by BAFTA.


It looks like a killer exhibition, especially when you look at perhaps their most-hyped attraction: the iconic pink dress designed by Molly Goddard and worn by Jodie Comer’ Villanelle in Killing Eve. You’ll also catch hair and make-up designs used to excellent effect in The Favourite, audiovisual displays examining Chiwetel Ejiofor’s research and preparation for 12 Years A Slave, and a look at the stirring score from Interstellar.

Initial sketches for an episode of The Clangers.

BAFTA: Behind the Screens also delves into the worlds of television and computer games, with features on classic children’s show The Clangers, and games Lumino City and Monument Valley all in residence. It’s the perfect way to launch BAFTA Piccadilly, a new exhibition space and cafe that’s temporarily housing the organisatio whilst their neighbouring space undergoes a multi-million pound refurbishment. And best of all, it’s entirely free to visit!

Find BAFTA: Behind the Screens at 194 Piccadilly, W1J 9EX, from September 17th.
