Who we are
We’re a group of ambitious producers and directors dedicated to creating high-end television that inspires, challenges and excites audiences.
We are storytellers, and enjoy telling those stories in a strikingly visual way with the very highest production values. Always.
Our BAFTA-winning team have worked on documentaries for Nat Geo Asia, Discovery, Channel 4, S4C and the BBC, as well as high-end drama series like Sherlock, Dr Who and Merlin. We pride ourselves on an array of programmes we have produced over the last decade, and to date we have produced over 100 hours of content for TV including …
- Sporting documentaries for the BBC
- Fixed-rig topical documentaries for S4C
- A music documentary looking at the world’s biggest Celtic Festival in Lorient
- A sailing programme looking at the world’s biggest sailing challenge – the Volvo Ocean Race
- A ‘Pizza in Parma’ TV series which took two pizza makers and their three-wheeled van to the world’s biggest pizza making championships in Parma – a series that was broadcast in over a 100 different countries.
From our base in Wales, we make programmes all over the world, with a worldwide outlook that match our worldwide ambition.
Some of the broadcasters who’ve shown our programmes:
Rob Light | Director of Television & Creative Production
Leading an energetic team, Rob’s role as is to oversee the team’s creative output across the whole of the production process.

Adrian Jones | Head of Production
Having been a producer and director for the past 15 years, Adrian has been at the helm of a wide range of projects and has worked with an even wider range of broadcasters.
He is responsible for overseeing every aspect of the team’s TV output – no matter the scale of the project. That’s over a 100 hours and counting!
He understands storytelling, creating content and delivering projects on time and on budget. Above all else, nothing gets him more excited than producing stories that captivate.
How we work
Our story began in the commercial world - producing TV commercials and promotional content for some of the world’s biggest brands. All from our base here in Wales.
Our team are the team behind commercial content for Johnson & Johnson, GE, Guinness World Record, UEFA Champion’s League and Visit Wales – the national tourism body in Wales.
In fact, it’s this very commercial that saw us take a customised seaplane, put an A-list Hollywood actor behind the wheel and fly it through Wales. It’s a commercial that we’re particularly proud of – not only because of the work behind it, but also because it showcases the best of what Wales can offer.
Of course, commercials are a different medium. Though whilst the duration may be shorter, the storytelling technique remains the same. And that’s something we put at the core of everything that we do – great storytelling. That’s what we do best. Great stories are what drives all our TV content, and is something that is always at the core of our ideas.
We’ve built a reputation as producers of factual and factual entertainment programmes – often showcasing travel, culture and food. Music too. We love producing content with a musical feel – though you’d assume that would be the case of course, given that we’re part of a group that is also Wales' biggest music promoters.
We are also big sports fans producing documentaries that focus on the stories behind some of Wales’ (in fact the world’s) biggest sporting names. In 2019 we will be producing over 35 films to mark the Rugby World Cup in Japan alone!
So… for great TV, with great stories, think… Orchard.
