Text Box: PRODUCTIONS

Established early in 1983, South African production company PLUM PRODUCTIONS has been responsible for many hours of television programming. During these 26 years, programmes have been supplied not only to local and international broadcasters, but to many corporate clients as well.

In the early days, PLUM PRODUCTIONS' accomplishments included a magazine programme series for BOP TV called Botswerere, the first ever coverage of indoor cricket for SABC Top Sport, and the first ever drama production (The Edge) shot entirely on Betacam in South Africa.

As the 90's began, PLUM PRODUCTIONS started shooting for and providing facilitation for, international producers working in South Africa, and continue doing so today. This has included work for Mariasela Alverez from the Dominican Republic, Robin Leach (Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous) from Los Angeles, MTV Europe, September Films in London, TV2 Denmark, Brighter Pictures in London, Cushman Bolton in New York, FIFA TV, Middle East Broadcasting Centre & Children's Television Workshop from New York.              

In 1995 PLUM PRODUCTIONS provided Eurosport with a one-hour programme covering Rumba in the Jungle, the annual international dance competition held at Sun City. The enthusiasm and kudos received from Eurosport, motivated PLUM PRODUCTIONS' continued involvement in dancesport. This has resulted in 7 one hour dancesport specials, ( some of which have been broadcast internationally, and one of which received recognition from the SABC as " ...one of the top ten best performing local programmes on SABC1... "). Over and above the three 13 part series covering both Provincial & National DanceSport Championships that have been broadcast in South Africa, PLUM PRODUCTIONS has also contributed dance inserts to magazine programmes.

PLUM PRODUCTIONS was also been responsible for the long running Xhosa consumer programme, Ufunda Ngomzekelo. Capturing the hearts of the average consumer, this programme received thousands of letters, and enjoyed a successful run of over ninety episodes on SABC 1.
