Richard Price, Chairman, founded Richard Price Television Associates in 1968, trading for 27 years as RPTA until in 1980, when it evolved into the Primetime Group, which was to become the largest independent distributor in the UK. The Primetime Group was sold to Southern Star (Australia) in 1998 and Richard reverted to the trade name of RPTA Ltd.

Richard Price first sprang to international prominence when he sold Upstairs, Downstairs (still regularly seen on terrestrial television) to the US over 30 years ago.

RPTA/The Performance Company specialises in producing feature films, drama series, and stage-to screen productions. Recently completed are films of the Royal National Theatre’s Oklahoma!, Merchant of Venice and Simon Callow’s Dickens as well as the recent West End and Broadway productions of Kiss Me Kate and the Elaine Stritch At Liberty show. There are a number of feature film and television drama projects currently in development.
