MSP was started by childhood friends Crispin Sadler and Simon Mallinson in 2002. Crispin is a multiple award winning documentary maker and Simon is a multiple award winning advertisement and film maker.

In 2017 the two friends became three when they were joined and partnered by documentary maker Phil Craig who as a producer, writer and programme commissioner has won awards and set rating records across three continents.

We produce factual programmes for a wide range of broadcasters all over the world, including over 40 episodes of our global hit series for National Geographic Channel, Drain the Oceans.

MSP have many exciting ideas in development some of which we hope to be announcing soon. We have offices in Bristol and Glasgow, the home of our sister company Mallinson Television Productions.


@NatGeoChannel #DrainTheOceans Buried Secrets of the Gold Rush is excellent watch. 👍 😊 Especially if you are from California.

I guess I like feeling like i’m learning something

Drain the Ocean is really really good, if you like history/archeology/science stuff

Night on Earth was a nature doc from a different POV

Secrets is pretty interesting too

Loyalties divided by love. But she’s still cheering for @OfficialProteas ! fabulous atmosphere at #kingsmead tonight. #SAvENG
