Abstract

This paper explores the impact that consolidation has had on the UK’s Independent Television Production Industry over the past decade and how this process had affected the running of different sized production companies. In-depth interviews with a number of influential professionals revealed five themes: the management of small companies, post acquisition, had not changed; economies of scale can be attributed to an increase in scale; medium sized companies would find it increasingly difficult to compete; the emergence of the Super Indie had not stifled creativity in the industry; a key driver in the consolidation process is that of individual gain. Key words: Independent Television Production, Industry Consolidation, Key Drivers, Super Indies, United Kingdom.
