About Mactv

Mactv is an award-winning production company, which specialises in powerful, creative and compelling factual documentary, arts and music programmes, in English and in Gaelic.

Based in Scotland’s sunny Hebrides, with development staff in the Central Belt, Mactv is the largest independent TV company in the Highlands and Islands and became an Employee Owned Trust in 2019. This ensures that the company is owned by and run for those closest to it – its 20-strong staff.

We are one of the biggest producers of programming for the Scottish Gaelic TV channel, BBC ALBA. This includes Trusadh, the channel’s flagship documentary series – telling Scotland’s contemporary and compelling stories.

The company continues to expand, both in size and in its range of high quality output across genres. We have a number of international co-production projects in production and in development.

We continue to target production synergies with companies in different broadcasting regions, within the UK, Europe and in the wider global context.
