I found a document there that specifies all manner of things particular to writers and TV production:
I then found the ITV Commissioning webpage
with a link for Producers' Guidelines at
that has a long list of other documents relevant to productions of which
explained the crediting guidelines.
After spending considerable time reading and scanning through these fascinating documents, I have a new real huge appreciation for what Philippa and Martin have to know to do their jobs as a production company!
Thank you so much for finding these.
It is all incredibly detailed.
ITV doesn't require someone to be credited unless they played a substantial part!
