TAC, the trade body for independent TV production companies in Wales, today welcomed the report from the independent review of the creative industries, carried out for the Labour Party by former Film Council head John Woodward.

Among other measures the report recommended that S4C’s level of funding should remain sufficient and that it was very important that its independence should be safeguarded.

TAC Chair Iestyn Garlick said:

“TAC contributed its views to the review both in writing and in a meeting and we’re pleased that the views of ourselves and others have been taken on board in respect of the future of S4C.”

“The review is clear that S4C continues to play an important part in media plurality and the creative industries and that it should continue to carry out that role with adequate funding and guaranteed editorial and managerial independence.”
