Could the BBC help out ITV?


by David Allen

Both ITV and the BBC have a slight problem; on the one hand there is ITV who are not willing to spend anymore on regional programming, children’s programmes or regional news.

While on the other hand, there is the BBC who gets £3.2 billion from the annual licence fee, but they are unwilling to share this with their competition.

The problem is that whether the channel is the BBC or ITV, they still have a commitment to providing public service broadcasting services, but as ITV are seeking to reduce the amount of money that they spend could the BBC step in here and help ITV out?

The BBC have offered to share their technical know how with ITV.

This would enable then to reduce the costs involved in making programmes and to share certain programming from the regions.

However this is not going to be nearly enough to save the target figure of £50 million by 2012 that ITV are looking for.
