Folder&Co brings together the resources of Folder Media‘s content and distribution business with the skills and talent of production companies Trevor Dann’s Company (TDC) and The Rubber Chicken.

Folder Media, with offices and studios in Holborn, operates the the DAB digital radio multiplex network MuxCo and the multi-platform children’s brand and national radio station Fun Kids.

TDC makes programmes for all the BBC networks, including the 50 part Radio 2 series Sounds of the 20th Century, and has won four New York Awards for its Radio 4 documentaries.

The Rubber Chicken, led by Dave Cribb and Tom Price, was formed in 2014 and supplies several returning comedy formats to BBC radio and various other platforms, including a recent substantial series commission from Audible.

All of the participants have agreed to pitch and deliver programmes for the BBC and other broadcasters under the Folder&Co banner. The partnership means the teams will have access to Folder Media’s cross-platform team and resources and will be able to draw on each partner’s knowledge and skills to deliver large-scale and creative ideas.

A number of other indies are currently talking to the Folder&Co team about adding their own specialisms to the group.
