Welsh report shows lack of coverage


by David Allen

In a report commissioned by the BBC and conducted by Cardiff University into the amount of coverage Wales gets on the news covered on TV, the results were enough to make the Welsh feel that they are virtually invisible to the rest of the UK.

The study showed that over a four week testing period in 2007, there were 1,964 news stories that covered the UK but over ninety two per cent covered England, Westminster or Downing Street.

In contrast Wales only had one and half per cent of the total news stories broadcast.

The worst offender would seem to be ITV as they have been cutting back the programming and coverage from the regions.

But even though the BBC do actually make a good effort to produce a wide range of regional programming they too have come under fire from the Welsh Assembly regarding this, prompting calls for more options for Wales.
