Thames Television

Thames Television was a production company involved in British comedy, founded in 1968 and closed in 2003.

Formed by the merger of Rediffusion London and ABC, Thames Television provided weekday services in ITV's London region between 1968 and 1992.

After losing its franchise in 1992, Thames continued as an independent TV production company.

Acquired by Pearson Television in the mid-1990s, it was merged by the company - then called FremantleMedia - in 2003 with TalkBack Productions to form TalkbackThames. The companies were de-merged into separate brands as of 2012, with Thames concentrating on general entertainment formats, Talkback on comedy entertainment and the new name Retort taking over the mantle of scripted comedy.
