British radio production company ABOVE THE TITLE has been sold to UBC MEDIA for 85,000 pounds cash and additional payments based on operating profit over the next two years, capped at 1 million pounds. The deal brings the production company responsible for BBC RADIO 4's version of "The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" into the UBC production operation, which includes SMOOTH OPERATIONS and UNIQUE.
UBC CEO SIMON COLE said, "ABOVE THE TITLE represents a very complementary addition to our growing stable of production companies and is an important step in our strategy of consolidating the content production marketplace. The business’ current production order book from the BBC and other content publishers is very strong."
