Air TV is one of the fastest-growing independent production companies in the UK with an unrivalled reputation for creating high-volume award-winning factual TV.
From the ratings-busting classic car show Bangers & Cash on UKTV’s Yesterday channel to blue light hit Helicopter ER on Discovery’s Really channel, our programmes are hits at home and around the world.
We also specialise in property with two new exciting series for Discovery Networks now in production.

In 2021 we’ve been finalists in the prestigious Broadcast Digital Awards and shortlisted as emerging indie of the year in the Edinburgh TV awards. We’re also proud to have been officially recognised as one of the best places to work in TV.

What makes us different?  We pride ourselves in building great long-term partnerships with our subjects.  We uphold the highest ethical standards and we take care of our contributors’ welfare.  And – of course – we deliver amazing TV, working with broadcasters like the BBC,  Channel 4 and 5.

We invest in our people, and our amazing team are some of the most highly trained in TV.  Many are qualified to work in the most challenging environments alongside emergency service teams on the ground – and in the air. We also employ the UK’s only full-time team of qualified air ambulance aircrew.

We’re proudly based in Yorkshire and passionately believe in reflecting real life across the UK.
