Seona Robertson

MD and Executive Producer

A BAFTA and Celtic Media Festival award winning producer, she made the first documentary series shown on Channel 4, Pleasure Palaces, through her first independent company Reality Productions.  A former mediaeval historian and specialist in archive-based history programmes, she founded the North West Film Archive in Manchester and moved to TV to work for Granada Television on Camera, a major international series on the history of film and photography.

For Scottish Television, she produced various historical series - such as the 30 part Scotland's War - and Runrig, a multi film camera rock concert, which won BAFTA Scotland Best Arts Film and the Celtic Media  Festival "Spirit of the Festival" award.  After founding Caledonia TV with Les Wilson in 1992, she produced much of the company's output - across all five terrestrial broadcasters, digital channels and internationally - and has been MD since 2002. She is now executive producer for the company with Les Wilson and Richard Melman. She directs the development department in expanding Caledonia TV’s local and network programming and has a special focus on the company’s international and co-production business.

She was a board member of the Scottish Film Council and, with Les Wilson, she is co author of the book of the series Scotland’s War.
