BlackRook Broadcast

Our management team has been producing, directing and executive producing programmes for some of the world’s most significant broadcasters for quarter of a century. They’ve done that across News, Current Affairs, Documentaries, Factual Entertainment, Daytime and Lifestyle, Sport and Weather content.


BlackRook’s broadcast production services offer in-house support within production environments, as well as on-location and studio programme making.
We’ll take hands-on responsibility for recruiting the team you need – no matter how tight the deadline – and then turning around the programming you require, ready for transmission.

Our leadership team has wide experience of managing network budgets, of legal, compliance and regulatory demands, as well as being trained in risk assessment procedures by IOSH (the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health).

Production Pedigree

BlackRook’s producers have award-winning expertise in studio magazine shows, hard-hitting location documentaries and personality-driven Factual Entertainment.
We work successfully across programming genres and have an international contacts base of production staff and editorial contacts.

Here are some more of the companies our team has made programmes for – and a few comments from just some of the many commissioning executives and senior colleagues we’ve worked with.

I commissioned Gavin Hill to make a six part series on Blenheim Palace for ITV. He worked tirelessly as a self-shoot camera operator, editor and producer to return a tremendous series that was nominated for a Royal Television Society Award. Gavin works seriously hard and gives every moment to delivering a polished product

Philip Braund, Documentary Producer.

Alan Rook is a very creative individual with sound editorial judgement, excellent management skills and a love of new ideas and their implementation. Alan works well within a team and is also a great team leader. He has personal charm and is good at engaging with all types of people. Having worked closely with Alan at ITV in a pressurised creative environment, I have no hesitation in recommending him

Shu Richmond, Managing Director at Big Brilliant Ideas and former Executive Producer for ITV Daytime..

Gavin is simply a genius. When it comes to filmmaking he is bursting with original ideas that can make even a fairly mundane project bubble with excitement. He is technically gifted and always up to date with the latest technologies. His background in TV news and documentary making gives him a tremendous advantage in the realms of corporate video-inner work. As a media trainer he’s witty, engaging and full of insightful tips that could only come from a TV journalist who has been there and done it, interviewing – for real – a wide variety of people from Hollywood celebrities to the man who defuses landmines with a pen knife

George Dearsley, Film Producer and Director

Alan’s production background means he has a clear idea of what makes great tv. My experience of working with him showed he is innovative and motivating. His management style encourages creativity and loyalty. Working with Alan has always been a pleasure

Andy Trythall, Director – BBC News

I had the pleasure of working with Gavin on “Interpol Investigates”. I would send him to remote, dangerous places, and he would send me amazing, beautiful material. He is fearless, creative, charming and has a wonderful sense of humor. I hope to work with him again, preferably in calm and luxurious circumstances.

George Dearsley, Film Producer and Director

I have hired Gavin Hill on a regular basis over the last fifteen years for television projects around the world. The results have always exceeded my best expectations. He is a tireless, creative and highly knowledgeable field producer/director who can be counted on to come through no matter what the circumstances and what part of the world the project is being filmed in.

Richard Wortman Producer U.S. State Department
