Established in 1993, Pier Productions is an award-winning audio and television production company based in Brighton.
Pier makes factual, drama and single voice readings for BBC Radio and Audible. The Company is known for its distinctive event programming, including our ten hour adaptations of War and Peace starring John Hurt and Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time, narrated by Sir Derek Jacobi. Titles for Audible include a new dramatization of Virginia Woolf’s Orlando by Lettie Precious and Sense and Sensibility narrated by Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
Pier also makes distinctive content for television. Penelope Keith went in search of motoring pioneer Dorothy Levitt for BBC 4 and Neil Morrissey re-joined the Scouts for a weekend to celebrate the centenary of the movement in a film for BBC 2. We recently made two stylish dramatised monologues read by Celia Imrie and Bernard Cribbins for The One Show as well as a film about the photographer Daniel Meadows who toured the UK in his photographic omnibus in 1973.
We have our offices and studios in a stylishly restored Regency town house in Brighton and have a strong track record in reflecting our region to a UK audience and developing locally based, diverse talent.
