TAC – Welsh indie TV producers’ statement on BBC Charter Review

12 May 2016

Iestyn Garlick, Chair of Teledwyr Annibynnol Cymru (TAC), today commented on the publication of the Government White Paper on BBC Charter Review:

“TAC welcomes those measures which give to independent producers the opportunity to bid to make more BBC programmes. The Welsh indie sector has a strong track record and we are confident of being able to win more commissions and therefore enable the BBC to better reflect the stories, perspectives and people of Wales to the rest of the UK and beyond. We also welcome requirements for BBC Studios to operate on a level playing field, in order that our producers can compete in a fair market.”

We are glad to see the maintaining of Out of London production quotas, as well as ongoing commitment to the funding and Review of S4C.”

“We are pleased that Alun Cairns and Guto Bebb have stood up for the creative sector in Wales and worked with DCMS to construct these proposals”.
