We’re independent radio producers, with a proven track record in making quality radio documentaries, news features and series. We specialise in factual and human interest stories; we love strong stories.
We bring extensive RTE and independent radio experience to our radio production services.
We are registered suppliers with RTE Radio One’s Independent Productions Unit, and have partnered with a UK based registered supplier for independent commissions there. We’re experienced Sound and Vision-funded producers.

“Across the Counter” is the first series we made with Sound and Vision funding. We travelled to eight towns in four provinces, recording the stories and challenges facing small town Ireland in the early new millenium. Here’s a clip from our visit to Clones, in Co. Monaghan.
We make radio features for not just the national radio stations, but also for the Not For Profit sector, and anyone who’ll pay us!
