BBC Films

BBC Films is the feature film-making arm of the BBC. It has produced or co-produced some of the most successful British films of recent years, including "Stage Beauty", "A Cock and Bull Story" and "Match Point". It currently produces approximately eight films per year.

Up until 2007, BBC Films was run and funded as a private company, with its own offices (in Mortimer Street around the corner from Broadcasting House), while still under the full control of the BBC. A recent re-structure of the division has seen it re-integrated into the main BBC Fiction department of BBC Vision, under the ultimate control of Jane Tranter. As a result, it has moved out of its independent offices into Television Centre and its head, David M. Thompson, has left to start his own film production company.
