BBC to change commissioning process


by David Allen

The main terrestrial broadcasters have been criticised recently over their lack of regional based programming.

In order to change the way that regional broadcasting is undertaken, the BBC have announced that they will be overhauling the role of TV production outside of London.

The BBC have gone one step further than probably was required.

They have decided to switch from commissioning regions to commissioning nations.

Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland will become responsible for the commissioning of new programmes for the nation.

Each nation will be under the control of commissioning executives, there will be more than five covering the three areas.

It may not be as nationalised as it first seems, as it may turn out that the commissioning executives already in place in Manchester and Glasgow will just get another job title.
