Three of Brighton's homegrown TV production companies are listed among the 100 best in the world.
Ricochet, back2back and Seventh Art Productions are all named in Realscreen's Global 100, the annual list of the most exciting and influential production companies working in non-fiction film & television. Culled from the best documentary and factual programmes of 2006, this list is the best of the best as chosen by the industry.
Bristol and London were the only other UK cities to feature whilst the rest of the list includes companies based in New York, Los Angeles, Sydney and Toronto.
Recognition for three Brighton based companies in Realscreen's list represents real success. It clearly illustrates that the city is fast becoming a major player in the global arena of knowledge based creative industries and demonstrates that, with the availability of modern technology, it is no longer necessary for companies to be based in London to compete internationally.
