The Bright Thoughts Product
"Within the industry, the pre-digital idea that once a show had been screened, it had little or no further value, relevance nor interest is an obsolete and flawed concept from the analogue era.
"Bright Thoughts is therefore working to make our past programming easily findable by our viewing audiences using key-word search. We aim to make our shows available internationally, on both streaming and download-to-own platforms and for our formats and brands to reach fresh audiences."
Music and entertainment
In the 2020s, with more than 15 channels in the UK alone screening archive TV there is a fresh demand, not only for subscription-based streaming services, but also the licensed use of clips and rare footage. The trend is on the increase.
Formats & brands
A number of formats are owned wholly by Bright Thoughts. The trademark of Top C's & Tiaras is owned by Bright Thoughts.
Licensing & Clips
The Bright Thoughts archive contains remarkable and rare footage of many key British performers - including Arthur Askey, Ron Moody, Dame Maureen Lipman, Barry Cryer, Cilla Black, Dame Julie Walters, Leonard Rossiter. Please get in touch for more information.
