When we launched The Garden in 2010 we said our purpose was: 

"to make cutting edge, ambitious, distinctive factual programmes for major broadcasters in the UK and internationally; and to be the most ideal production company we can be, where programme-makers can do their very best work and that always delivers exceptional television.”


Since then we’ve produced more than 300 hours of some of Britain’s most memorable factual television, topped industry peer polls and won numerous BAFTA, RTS and Broadcast Awards.  

Our purpose remains exactly the same.
