TAC statement on S4C document ‘‎Pushing the Boundaries’

7 April 2017

Teledwyr Annibynnol Cymru, the trade body for independent production companies in Wales, today commented on the new report from S4C, which sets out the service’s ambitions for the future, and the requirements for it to succeed.

TAC Chair, Iestyn Garlick said:

“We welcome S4C setting out its vision, and concur that for the service to remain relevant it must go beyond its core TV service and have the resources to be on other platforms.

“The independent TV production sector in Wales is clear that S4C’s funding must be raised to a level where it can have a greater proportion of original content.

“We are keen to work with S4C to make the best use of that content internationally, whilst upholding the legal principle that intellectual property rights ultimately lie with the producer.

“We are now hoping the UK government will proceed with the review of S4C soon, in order that we have a thorough and detailed look at all aspects of S4C’s future.”
