The One Show

We’re proud to be a supplier of films to The One Show, BBC1’s flagship early evening show, regularly reaching audiences of 3-5 million viewers.

Our films this year included the amazing Dame Stephanie Shirley; a pioneering engineer who helped save the Spitfire and founded an all-women software company that created 70 millionaires, and an experiment where we got first-timers to overcome fear and jump off a 10-metre diving board.
