We make, fund, sell, invest in and export the very best stories to audiences around the world.

Award-winning quality and range

Around 2,500 hours of content is created every year in our production studio with bases around the world. We are the most awarded – and most commissioned – producer in the UK. Led by Ralph Lee, BBC Studios Productions makes programmes across a huge range of genres and specialisms, including premium factual, entertainment, drama, comedy and major events.

For the BBC, shows include Frozen Planet II, Happy Valley and Time, alongside long-running series favourites like Strictly Come Dancing, EastEnders, Countryfile, The One Show, and Silent Witness. For the wider market, we’ve made hits like Prehistoric Planet and Trying for Apple TV+; The Surgeon’s Cut, Murder Among The Mormons and The Anthrax Attacks for Netflix; Good Omens for Amazon; and Dancing With The Stars for Disney+. 

Our international production bases make shows for major local networks and streaming platforms, while we have established long-term partnerships with blue-chip media companies to make and fund premium programming enjoyed by audiences at home and internationally.
