British TV Too Colored, Execs Too White

Jun 26, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Samir Shah, a member of the BBC’s board of directors, said U.K. broadcasters have overcompensated for a lack of minority executives by littering television programs with ethnic actors, regardless of whether they fit the cultural context of the program, the Guardian reports. Shah called for current TV industry diversity policies to be dissolved since they do not promote any change within the executive ranks of broadcast organizations, which are still predominantly white in Britain, the newspaper says.
