BBC to Cut Back on U.S. Program Spending

Nov 30, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The BBC is moving to support its domestic producers, at the expense of U.S. shows, Variety reports.

BBC Director-General Mark Thompson said that after the digital conversion is completed in 2012, the BBC will spend a higher proportion of its license fee on “original British content than we are able to today.”

He said the “license fee’s importance as an engine of creative investment in British talent is more important than ever.”
