- Rebecca Hodgson - (Head of Drama, Lime Pictures)
- Jermain Julien - (Director, Wolfblood and The Dumping Ground)

The panel debated the impact of BBC Children’s move to Salford; Pact’s call for the introduction of tax breaks for children’s television and assessing the success of animation tax breaks; BAME representation in children’s media.
