Entries have now opened for this year’s annual Broadcast Indie Survey.


Any UK-based producer that was responsible for at least one piece of original commissioned content that transmitted in the UK – on a linear channel or online - for the first time in 2016 qualifies for entry.

The survey, sponsored by Barclays ranks all producers by annual turnover and also gives detailed breakdowns of the fastest-growing companies, the top owners and consolidators and attitudes towards the main commissioning broadcasters.

Last year’s survey featured 152 companies with a combined global turnover of £2.3bn, including new companies such as Catastrophe producer Merman, Karl Warner’s Electric Ray and drama producer New Pictures.

Sports specialist IMG remained the top performer with an annual turnover of £174.5m, while Rawcut Television, Plimsoll Productions and Darrall Macqueen were among the fastest growing companies.

If you wish to submit your details, please download and complete the attached form [right] and email it to features editor Robin Parker by Wednesday 1 Febuary.

The supplement will be unveiled at the Broadcast Indie Summit at Bafta on Thursday 16 March.

The summit will be packed with best practice advice about how to launch, run and grow a successful production business
