Production 100 2012 Back to Reports & survey Listing

How the Production 100 works
Every year, we send survey forms to independent television production companies throughout the UK and ask them a series of questions – from their turnover, to the rival indies they respect and who they think are the best and worst broadcasters to deal with. We also ask how business has been over the past year, and about the outlook for the 12 months ahead. The facts provided, which relate to the period July 2011-June 2012, form the basis of the Production 100.

The top 100 of these indies are ranked over the following pages according to the turnover of their UK operations. Many superindies, like All3Media, Endemol, Zodiak and Shine, are significant international concerns, owning companies abroad or are themselves part of global conglomerates. But the headline figures in the Production 100 only account for the turnover of their UK operations.

The individual brands of the superindies are not ranked separately, but included within the parent company’s listing.
Staff figures relate to full time staff only. Turnover and profit figures are for the period July 2011-June 2012 or the nearest equivalent. Profits are only published if provided.

A number of indies chose not to reply to the survey and are not included in the rankings. But we’re satisfied that the Production 100 covers the vast majority of companies operating in the UK.

Finally, thanks to all the companies who took part – particularly if you didn’t quite make it into the top 100.
