UK-based distributor Sky Vision has sealed a raft of sales with broadcasters across Europe as the NATPE market in Budapest kicks off.

The biggest single deal is with Russia’s first IPTV service Stream, which has taken a 72-hour package that includes fishing series from indie producer Wildwise Catching the Impossible and Passion for Angling.

Pan-regional broadcaster Viasat has also bought a package of programming including Objective Productions’ Sky 1 fact-ent series and format Make Me a Millionaire Inventor.

In Ukraine Inter TV has picked up a pair of series featuring naturalist David Attenborough, Galapagos and Kingdom of Plants (pictured). Polish pubcaster TVP has also taken both Attenborough shows and Russia’s Kultura has acquired Galapagos.
