We are thrilled to announce that Middlechild have been voted one of the Best Places to work in TV in the UK.
This survey and award program was designed to identify, recognise and honour the best places of employment in TV, benefiting the TV field, its work force and businesses.
Organisations from across the UK entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in TV. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top organisations and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process and determined the final rankings.

We’re running the length of the country for Alzheimer’s Society because of the support they offer dementia sufferers.
The most physically demanding of all the proposed events started on Saturday, April 7th, 2018, when we began our attempt to each run a whopping 811 miles (1305km) in just 36 weeks: The exact road-running distance between the most northerly point of the UK, John O’Groats in Scotland, to the most southerly point, Land’s End in Cornwall.
Andrew with 288 miles would be by Rommanobridge, only 65 miles away from crossing into England!
Followed closely by Dan with 276 miles who would be at Kirknewton.
Well done guys, an absolutely sterling effort! Keep it up.

Please donate if you can, to give them further motivation to continue with this gruelling challenge.
The Alzheimer’s Society’s National Dementia Helpline offers information, advice and emotional support to people affected by dementia. Their 3,000 services across England, Wales and Northern Ireland offer information, care and support to people with dementia, their families, friends and carers.
We think this is an extremely worthwhile cause for us to support and if we can raise £5000 from taking on this challenge (to put towards our £10K target for the year) we will be able to support the Alzheimer’s Society manage the impact and subsequent difficulties that a diagnosis will have on an individual and their family. Thank you for your help.

We have launched a digital department, to expand the range of services we can offer our clients, led by Executive Digital Consultant, Matt Ralph.
Matt was most recently an assistant digital commissioning editor for BBC Factual, where he was responsible for projects including the David Attenborough-fronted Plastic Watch and BBC3’s Broadcast Digital Award-winning short-form doc Ambulance. Previously he spent over two years helping steer BBC3 from a linear channel to an online-only service, helping to develop its social media and mobile-first presence. He has also created short-form content for the likes of Hearst Magazines, Virgin Media, Nissan and All 4.
“The digital landscape excites me as a precinct that breaks many rules, and at the same time reinforces others,” he said. “Each year the importance of digital grows, and each new generation has greater expectations for content.”
Middlechild managing director David Sumnall says that “Digital is the fastest growing area of the industry and it would be remiss of us not to move into that space,” he added.

Filmed over six months we meet the everyday heroes that go above and beyond to rescue trapped, sick and injured animals from deadly situations.
Saving Britain’s Wildlife follows the RSPCA in their battle to protect nearly a thousand different species of wild animals fighting for survival in the dwindling wild spaces left by our expanding urban jungle.
We witness the dramatic rescues of wildlife in danger, including a goose impaled with a crossbow bolt through the neck and a deer trapped upside down between two walls. We follow the twists and turns of their rehabilitation and watch the emotionally charged moments they are released back into the wild.
You can find Quest Red on the following platforms:
Also the shows will be available to view on https://www.questod.co.uk/

In this special episode of ‘The Dog Rescuers’, we join Inspector Anthony Joynes as he takes his dog-rescuing skills to Malawi. This isn’t the first time Anthony’s visited the country; Series 2 of ‘The Dog Rescuers’ saw the Merseyside-based inspector fly out to lend a hand to the Lilongwe Society for the Protection and Care of Animals (LSPCA), the RSPCA’s sister charity. It was an emotional experience, and Anthony jumped at the chance of going back, this time with RSPCA vet Riaz Rhemu.
The episode follows Anthony and Riaz as they rescue a roadside stray, go undercover to investigate the illegal puppy trade, help out at an open-air surgery on World Spay Day and vaccinate an astounding number of dogs against rabies. Conditions are very different from those the pair are used to in the UK but there’s no time to waste so it’s all hands on deck. Can Riaz and Anthony cope or will the experience prove to be too much?
