Who we are

Eddie Morgan and Terry Wilson set up Northern Town in 2014 to specialise in factual TV especially music, arts and culture of all kinds.

We’re a diverse team with backgrounds in the indie sector, BBC and ITV.

We’re a real indie, not owned in any way by a bigger group or private money.

We make TV programmes for channels in the UK and globally.

Our most recent commission is drama doc The Last Testament of Lillian Bilocca for the BBC in 2018.

Our biggest commission is an 80 episode series Brilliant Ideas for Bloomberg TV.

We also make digital content for clients, including 100 museums and galleries around the UK.

We’re always developing new ideas – from one-off films and live events to formats and factual entertainment.

We love working with other indies, organisations and anyone with a great idea.

So if that’s you, get in touch.
