The Caledonian Television Company

Legitimate professionals - with the right tools for the job!

When it comes to business video, our focus is on small businesses run by real people living in the real world.

The Caledonian Television Company™ is a full service business video production company founded in 1986 at the Red Road in Glasgow - on the very grounds where the old Caledonian Railway Company once ruled the rails.  Built on traditional working class values and heritage; we're proud to be a small unpretentious family business.

We've been applying the skills and techniques of broadcast production to business video for well over thirty-five years now.  - And for all that time, we've been making corporate video an affordable option for ordinary businesses.  That's done by stripping away all the costly nonsense and meaningless hyperbole often associated with corporate video production; leaving only what's relevant to those who really do mean business - integrity, good value and high quality. 

We primarily serve the 99%+ of all Scottish businesses that are Sole Traders, Micro-businesses or SMEs. - As well of course as cost conscious third sector and public service providers.  

We are legitimate masters of our trade - broadcast trained and properly qualified; dedicated video production specialists working collaboratively with the Creative, Marketing, Design, PR and Training industries and directly with business owners  and their in-house teams to provide a complete, fully project-managed, script to screen video production service. 

Caledonian TV™ is owned and run by a legitimate broadcast professional with well over 40 years of industry experience to their name - the real deal! Our offer is simple; experienced, specifically-qualified people with the right tools, do the job they are actually trained to do, at a reasonable price.  

We work to UK broadcast standards (both technical and operational) in order to protect your business interests. We address the common problems of poor programme quality, inadequate project management, legal, copyright and technical risk; all typically associated with using unqualified, untrained 'semi pros' and other non-specialists.

We can take you from initial idea to a programme which is legally safe and technically fit to be shown anywhere from YouTube, broadcast on TV or shown in a commercial cinema. If a 'one stop' solution is what you need - we can provide that. If a 'crew only' service is what you need - we're happy to provide that too. 

Costly? We can make complete programmes from as little as £800 for sales, promotion, social media, training, education, exhibition, advertising and most other legitimate business purposes. - no catch, no upsell, no hard sell, no mug's eyeful!

PROFESSIONAL CREWS. We only use crew who have successfully studied TV or Film production at a legitimate UK Academic Institution and/or trained with a major UK broadcaster such as the BBC or one of the ITV companies.

First established in October 1986 - The Caledonian Television Company™ is still personally owned and run by its founder, Matt Quinn; an ITV-trained cameraman - and former College Lecturer in Television Production - with well over forty years of genuine broadcast experience..

PROFESSIONAL EQUIPMENT. We shoot on real broadcast TV cameras - NOT DSLRs! We edit to meet EBU broadcast standards for topical content on full edit suites. And naturally, we use traditional broadcast lighting and sound.

Your professional video partners...

We make real television programmes for real-world businesses. We also provide production services for select news and documentary makers. - General production management and assistance, programme research and editorial services, scripting, compliance monitoring and auditing, video editing, crew and technical consultancy etc.

All of our work is covered as standard by strict, legally binding non-disclosure policies that provide you with full security over your project.  From the initial consultation on, you can be sure that all discussions are in strict confidence and that your sensitive commercial information is safe with us.  - We also work proactively to protect your intellectual property and that of others; for example ensuring that issues such as copyright and advertising codes are properly addressed.

We don't believe in giving anyone the hard sell.  However, we do encourage people to contact us as early as possible in the planning stages of their project. This allows us to advise and plan well in advance and  identify cost savings; avoiding the situation where projects and facilities booked at the eleventh hour create unnecessary cost-drivers and/or project risk.  - An informal chat or email exchange with us costs and commits you to nothing.

We invite you to get in touch without any obligation or pressure, as early as possible in your project.
