Family History Films was started by the founders of two leading production companies, Paul Hurley and Jon Bell, who have a collective wealth of experience in creating and managing content for broadcasters, leading corporations and consumer brands.

To our international team of professional researchers and production experts we added the world class historical research credentials and academic network of Dr Nick Barratt who, among other broadcasting assignments, led the research team for the successful BBC TV series Who Do You Think You Are?

Our shared passion for bringing history to life combine with a unique breadth of resources and depth of expertise to create beautiful and compelling individual programmes in around six weeks, for a fraction of the cost of a TV programme.
