Wingspan (previously known as Takeaway Media) have produced a number of acclaimed documentaries including Motherland for which they were the recipients of several British and international awards. They also produce the popular BBC2 series Balderdash and Piffle. The books published to accompany Balderdash and Piffle provides an entertaining and informative journey through the provocative, bewildering and often downright bizarre world of language and etymology. Wingspan also produced a programme for the BBC in the autumn which will tell the story of British diplomatic missions of the last 500 years. The accompanying book Getting Our Way will be published alongside the series in September 2009.
