Tele-Search is a Japanese production company based in the UK.

Tele-Search (Europe) Ltd is an independent company, founded thirty years ago with the aim of providing specialized production services to Japanese television companies and broadcasters filming overseas. With experience of managing projects in over 50 countries, and constantly on the lookout for new challenges, we have since expanded our remit to include corporates, commercials, events, music videos, magazines and online content.

Recently, the increasingly global nature of media output has led to our involvement in a number of international co-productions. As a London-based team of Japanese-speakers well-versed in both Western and Japanese media cultures, we are uniquely placed to offer support to UK production companies and agencies working on Japan-related projects.

We have a diverse range of experience in both the public and private sectors, including extensive collaboration with the leading Japanese marketing agencies, Dentsu and Hakuhodo. Whether assisting Japanese clients on location in Europe, or liaising between the Japanese and British arms of a co-production, we ensure a seamless production process from planning through to project completion.


From prime-time entertainment shows to innovative documentaries and current affairs, we work on a day-to-day basis across all the main Japanese channels and platforms. We have co-produced hundreds of hours of programming, building an unrivalled reputation in this field. We also offer linguistic and cultural support to British broadcasters and production companies creating Japan-related content.


We provide written content, data research and professional photography services to clients requiring up-to-the minute information for magazine articles, fashion spreads, and online publications.


Japanese music producers seeking to explore Europe’s rich musical heritage, add a touch of scenic glamour to music videos, or take advantage of world-class recording facilities can count on a smooth and informed service, from studio to location


We offer support with every aspect of event planning from logistics and venue hire to on-site management, whether for exhibitions, product launches or hospitality events.


Understanding the role of culture in international business can often mean the difference between success and failure, and the media industry is no exception. We can offer a unique overview of the UK and Japanese markets, advising on trends and products in broadcasting and other media.
