Keo is widely admired in the industry, both for its culture and innovative factual programming.  Over the past year the indie has launched its River Cottage brand in Australia, and broadened its output into more features and popular factual areas, producing shows like Victoria Wood’s Nice Cup of Tea alongside hard-hitting docs for which Keo is well known, like Skint. Revenues are up from £7.9m to £9.8m this year.  “We have experienced growth in turnover and profitability against a background of budgetary pressures,” says finance director Simon Huntley. “Factual seems to be growing in popularity again, but you have to work harder than ever to win and then deliver on a commission.”
