London, April 2012 – In this new series from Silver River, Radio 5 live presenter Richard Bacon sets out to find a group of lucky individuals possessing hidden natural talents that, unbeknownst to them, could change their lives forever. 'Hidden Talent' starts on Channel 4 on Tuesday 24th April at 9pm.
The six-part series will test hundreds of people from across the country to discover their hidden physical, mental, sensory or creative skills. These are the talents we never knew we had or perhaps have never had the opportunity to discover, such as an ability to become fluent in a foreign language in a matter of months, be able to free-dive and hold their breath for more than four minutes at depths of more than 60 metres, have the rare talent to instinctively detect lies or have the natural ability and physiology to become an opera singer. Richard Bacon will look at the science behind each person’s skills and follow their progress as they try out their new-found abilities.
The grade for both episode one and two was supplied by Kevin Horsewood, the online work by Scott Hinchcliffe and Ronnie Newman and the audio work provided by Ben Hooper. The post production was overseen by Juliet Gonsalves.
