Bill Hughes and Bernadine Carraher who previously worked together for six years set up Mind the Gap Films in 2001. The company specialises in television entertainment, music, documentaries, and other factual programming. We regularly work on large scale productions with budgets of over €1 million and bring them in on time and on budget.

We are currently working on Glaoch Ón Triú Reich, a BAI funded historical documentary for TG4's Anamnocht series. It will be broadcast in Autumn 2012. We are also in pre-production on a brand new 9-part dance show for RTÉ Young Peoples called Pump Up My Dance. During Summer 2011 we completed two BAI funded series - one for RTÉ and one for TV3. IFTA Award-winning The Only Viking In The Village features renowned comedian Neil Delamere going in search of his Viking roots. The series features obs, sketches and stand-up and was filmed in Denmark, Dublin, Waterford and Wexford. It was broadcast on RTÉ 1 in November and December 2011. Ireland's Beauty Queens explores the tradition of festivals in Ireland that crown a queen. We filmed at six festivals around the country during Summer 2011. The series aired on TV3 in May 2012.

Ireland Dig It! is a BAI funded archaeological adventure series for RTE which was broadcast in September 2010. It was selected for screening at the Chicago International Children's Film Festival in 2011. Our alternative comedy programme Adam Hills: Comically Challenged for BBC NI featured the Aussie comedian exploring the relationship between comedy and disability. It was broadcast in July 2011. We completed a Radharc & European Journalist Award winning long form observational documentary series for RTE called Music Changes Lives and Modern Ireland, a series for TV3, both of which were funded by the BAI.

Our children's format It’s My Show for the 9 to 13 year age-group was a ratings winner for RTE. Our acclaimed documentary on world renowned Irish pianist John O’Conor’s masterclass was shown at the Dublin Documentary Film Festival and on RTE in February 2009. Our observational documentary An Bhfuil Cead Agam, following 10 adults at a summer Gealtacht course trying to revive their school Irish, was broadcast for Seachtain na Gaeilge on RTE1 in March 2009. Our diverse production slate also includes a documentary on the late singer songwriter Christie Hennessy.

We are entering our 16th year of producing Hands On, the programme for the Deaf community in Ireland. The show is going from strength to strength and this year features fascinating Deaf and hearing information and advice on everything from 3rd level education to maternity care, internet safety and the emergency services; and plenty of fun challenges and exciting stories too.

In 2005, Happy Birthday Oscar Wilde a 90 minute special filmed in association with Art for Amnesty for RTE, PBS, BBC and SBS won a nomination for the Golden Rose of Lucerne.

In February 2010 we filmed Hallelujah Broadway in the Church of St. Simon and St. Jude in Prague, Czech Republic. In this special for PBS and RTE we harnessed the emotional power of the songs that have so inspired millions of theatre goers and gathered them all together in one feast of entertainment.The show is high on emotion with a true spiritual connection at its heart. We selected the most uplifting and powerful songs from the great Broadway musicals and had them sung by powerful tenors Anthony Kearns and Rodrick Dixon, soprano Alfreda Burke, with Linda Eder as our Special Guest Star.
