ClearStory was founded in 2011 by Russell Barnes and Molly Milton. Over the last six years, it has built a reputation for producing rigorously researched, thought-provoking and entertaining television and branded content. Working for a variety of broadcasters, we specialise in bringing complex subject matter and processes to life on screen, finding the story and resonance that engages a television audience or delivers a corporate message effectively and powerfully.
Amongst other productions, the company has produced the Grierson Award-winning Gypsy Blood, a gritty feature-length observational documentary for Channel 4, Sex Box, a studio format that has been acquired by territories across the world, Battlefield Recovery, an immersive history series for Discovery and Channel 5, Sex, Death & the Meaning of Life [link], a science travelogue presented by Richard Dawkins and Long Shadow, a landmark BBC2 series on the legacy of the First World War, which has been successfully distributed to networks worldwide, including NETFLIX. ClearStory’s commercial ♯Durex Connect went viral in March 2015, earning over 70 million aggregated hits in under a month.
2017 sees ClearStory in production on projects for broadcasters including the BBC and SKY ARTS.
