  ITV doubles its order for new Agatha Christie television films from Chorion

        Doubling of 2005 commission follows success of new Marple series

London. Wednesday, 16 March 2005 -- Chorion PLC, the leading owner of
entertainment brands and content, today announced that ITV has commissioned an
additional tranche of television films based on the stories of the world's best
selling mystery writer Agatha Christie.

Under the terms of Chorion's current output deal with ITV, the broadcaster is
contracted to purchase four films a year each year from 2003 to 2006. Four
Poirot films were made in 2003, and in December 2004 four new Marple films,
starring Geraldine McEwan, were broadcast. Following the ratings success of
these productions, ITV has decided to increase its order for 2005.

Chorion will now make eight Agatha Christie films in 2005, with a minimum of six
of them to be delivered this year and two early in 2006. Later in 2006, a
minimum of a further four films will be delivered. The precise split between
Marple and Poirot films has yet to be decided by the broadcaster.

This increased commission for 2005 follows on from the success of the 2004 Miss
Marple films. In 2004, "Agatha Christie: Marple" was co-produced by Chorion,
Granada and PBS. The four two-hour dramas averaged a 33% audience share; three
of the four films were the most-watched programmes in their fiercely-competitive
Sunday evening timeslot. The series followed the template set by Poirot, with
each film featuring A-list casts, strong writers and high production values.
Granada International is the distribution agent for these titles and it reports
that international sales have so far have exceeded their expectations.

Nicholas James, Chief Executive of Chorion plc said:

"This is a valuable boost for Chorion. The continued demand for Agatha Christie
films from ITV and broadcasters worldwide clearly demonstrates the company's
ability to reinvent and reinvigorate a classic brand, and make it relevant for
modern audiences. We look forward to broadening the appeal of the world's
greatest mystery writer and bringing more of her classic stories to television
screens around the world."
