BIG WHEEL Film & Television

Big Wheel Film & Television

Big Wheel was founded in 2017 to make ambitious, cutting edge documentaries, factual programmes and feature docs.

Our purpose is to be a totally modern old-fashioned indie - characterful, bold, authentic and fun.

In a sometimes cynical industry, we are a purely ideas-led company. The ideas we have are the product of things we are genuinely interested in and passionate about.

This means that we only ever make programmes we love.

It also means we make more than one type of programme.

But everything we do bears our hallmark:

  • a love of big questions
  • a fearless approach
  • imagination
  • a sense of humour.

We believe that making TV is both a privilege and an adventure.

The Big Wheel team

The Big Wheel team combines youth and experience, and comes from a wide variety of backgrounds.

Between us, we have produced, overseen and commissioned 100s of hours of television, including observational series like Exodus, Skint, The Hunt For Britain's Sex Traffickers and The Force, landmark factual series such as The Power of Art and Welcome to India, popular factual such as Embarrassing Bodies, Hugh's War on Waste and Psychopath Night, and feature documentaries including The Fall, Inside Apple Corps and My Generation featuring Michael Caine.
