Mu ar deidhinn

Mactv is a multi-award winning production company, which specialises in powerful, creative and compelling factual documentary, history, science, arts and music series.

The largest independent TV company in Scotland’s Highlands and Islands, we 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 content producers for BBC ALBA. This includes 240 hours of Trusadh, the Scottish Gaelic channel’s flagship documentary series. Our awards, for work in English and in Gaelic, include a Grierson, a Scottish BAFTA, an RTS Scotland, a CICSEP Silver Dragon, a Chicago International TV Festival certificate of merit and several Celtic Media awards. Our content has broadcast on BBC, RTE, S4C, TG4, STV and CBC.

We focus on factual programming, with a large development slate including drama as well as several international co-production projects at various stages. Our development arm continues to target opportunities and production synergies worldwide.
