Our Story

HG Productions is the brainchild of Irish-born, Glasgow-based, Gold International Award winning documentary maker Helena Gallagher. With 17 years’ production experience at the BBC across music, sport, current affairs and popular culture, Helena decided to go it alone in 2008 forming HG Productions.

Helena is as passionate about listening as she is about story telling, thus creating poignant, truthful, entertaining and sometimes hard hitting documentaries. This has resulted in HG Productions blossoming into an exciting business, synonymous with creativity, professionalism and excellence.

HG career highlights to date include: producing BBC Radio 1’s “‘Mon the Biff – The story of Biffy Clyro”. Helena had exclusive access to the band in the recording studios in Glasgow, New York and LA as they recorded their 5th album ‘Only Revolutions’ and revealed the Biffy story. “Demons Going Around My Head” featuring Neil Lennon formerly of Celtic Football Club and Steve Mason of The Beta Band was produced for BBC Radio 1 and gave an intimate and inspiring insight into those affected by mental health. Searching for Answers was produced for RTE Doc On One and winner of Gold New York International Award in 2011, a poignant look at the loss of multiple lives of Irish fishermen at sea.

Helena has worked with some of the biggest names in music, sport and entertainment including Snow Patrol, Kings of Leon, Lorraine MacIntosh of Deacon Blue, The Beta Band, Alex Dickson of Iron Maiden, Packie Bonner, Neil Lennon, Sanjeev Kohli, Zane Lowe, Edith Bowman, Annie Mac and Ford Kiernan of Still Game Fame.
