Love Productions specialises in accessible, entertaining TV with social purpose at heart such as Famous, Rich and Homeless and Young, Autustic and Stagestruck. Having made its name with BBC3 shows like The Baby Borrowers and Young Mums’ Mansion, Love has recently started working with BBC1 and BBC2 and is on the verge of landing its first ITV1 order. “Like many indies, we do get typecast for making a particular genre of television and it’s always exciting to make different shows and break into new genres,” says creative director Richard McKerrow. This summer’s BBC2 series Great British Bake Off is a case in point. Love’s Bristol office has been busy recently making series such as Wags, Kids and World Cup Dreams, and its US office started up again this year to make Kidnapped by the Kids for the Oprah Network.

It’s been a “surprising” year for Keo Films, says md Zam Baring. “Everything fell off a cliff in about June or July 2009 and we thought there was going to be a meltdown. It didn’t transpire in the end and in fact it turned out to be one of our best years.” Highlights included the acclaimed Welcome to Lagos for BBC2 and its Stateside version of Meet the Natives: USA for Travel/NGCI. And, of course, Keo’s co-owner Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall also continued making episodes of River Cottage for C4. Keo makes 84% of its turnover from TV production, and says its rights catalogue accounts for 7% and new media for 8%. Falling budgets and the need to co-finance are among Keo’s concerns for the year ahead, says Baring, as is “whether our small scale is going to count for us or against us.”
