More ground-breaking sports contracts followed, with NBA Basketball for Channel 4, Rugby Union for the BBC, global coverage of the World Rally Championship and ITV’s Formula 1 coverage.

Starting out as the sports television wing of the Chrysalis Media Group, the company was responsible for Channel 4’s seminal coverage of Italian football throughout the 1990s, as well as breaking out into factual entertainment with the gigantically successful Saturday night ‘Top Ten’ franchise, which single-handedly invented the ‘list’ genre and saw the company produce over 100 hours of archive documentaries, again for Channel 4.

The company was the first acquisition of what is, today, a global powerhouse – All3Media - becoming North One Television in 2004.

More recently, North One produced worldwide coverage of the Isle of Man TT and currently provides global coverage of motorsport’s fastest-growing race series – Formula E – and, on two wheels, MotoGP for BT Sport in the UK. This year has also seen North One launch worldwide coverage of the revolutionary, eco-friendly all electric rally series - Extreme E - from locations across the globe - an epic achievement which won the Broadcast Sports Awards' Sports Production of the Year for 2021.

We have also won the contract to produce NFL highlights for the BBC. We produce two shows a week - The NFL Show (BBC1) and The NFL This Week (BBC2) - as well as preview coverage of the Super Bowl.

In popular factual, two long-running consumer brands - car show, Fifth Gear and tech series, The Gadget Show – have both been in constant production for over fifteen years. We have produced hundreds of episodes of each show, with The Gadget Show recently celebrating an incredible 450th episode. Fifth Gear has recently relaunched as Fifth Gear: Recharged - concentrating on electric and electric hybrid vehicles - on Discovery + and Quest. The Gadget Show continues to test and review all the tech that matters in a successful new Wednesday evening slot on Channel 5.

Amongst myriad other programming, North One has scored notable hits on Channel 4 with some sixty hours of programming (so far) with lorry mechanic, motorbike racer and TV daredevil Guy Martin - including his recent new 'build it then race it' four-part series, Guy's Garage. Also for C4, another long returner is the BAFTA-nominated comedy travel show, Travel Man, originally with Richard Ayoade, now with Joe Lycett - currently in production on its tenth and eleventh series.

In the realm of popular history, we recently made two documentaries for ITV with the late, great Captain Sir Tom Moore, while Guy Martin's latest foray into the nation's military past saw him test his abilities as both a WW2 Battle of Britain fighter pilot and as part of the crew on a Lancaster bomber. 

We have also launched a host of new brands - as well as partnering with Paul Hollywood for his Easy Bakes online offerings, we will, after a successful visit to Japan, be returning with another series of Paul Hollywood Eats... on Channel 4. Other returning travel show formats include Ricky and Ralf's Very Northern Road Trip (UKTV Gold) and Eddie Eats... America (and Christmas) - for Dave. We have also made, with Sir Trevor McDonald, a celebration of the news stories that always made us smile - And Finally ... (ITV) and, with Alexis Conran, Secrets of Your Takeaway (Channel 5).
