Humble Bee Films was launched in 2010 by former BBC Natural History Unit producer Stephen Dunleavy.

The company specialises in making high-end factual programming for a range of international broadcasters.

Humble Bee Films chief executive Stephen Dunleavy says, "We have been working with Thomson for a couple of years and the company has benefitted from his broad experience, particularly as we ventured into the world of streamers. We are delighted he has agreed to be with us on a more permanent basis as we continue to grow and diversify the company."

"Having spent so much of my career at large super-indies, it has been really interesting working with a truly independent company that has such a great reputation for making brilliant programmes. I am very much looking forward to being part of the continued growth of this exciting and talented company," concludes Thomson.
