About Wise Owl Films

Wise Owl Films is a multi-award winning team of programme makers from across many different genres of factual and factual entertainment television – from surprising, obs doc series about life in an ever-changing Britain to shows celebrating our popular culture, and social histories revealing untold stories about our nation.

Recent ‘real world’ projects includes the BBC2 series Yorkshire Firefighters, filmed during the pandemic; Channel 4’s Second-Hand For 50 Grand, about the boom in the pre-owned luxury goods market, and the ITV series The Metro: A Rail Life Story.

Leaders in shows celebrating popular culture, over the last 20 years we have told the stories of some of the best loved names in music and comedy – from Elvis Presley to the Beatles, Victoria Wood to Morecambe and Wise - and worked with key talent including Elton John, David Jason, David Walliams, Trevor McDonald, Robson Green and Peter Kay.

Experts in music and social history, we brought When Bob Marley Came To Britain and When Nirvana Came To Britain to BBC2, revealed hidden archive treasures in Guy Garvey: From The Vaults on Sky Arts and told the story of the nation’s history of innovation in More 4’s David Jason’s Great British Inventions.
