BBC moves lottery out to the regions


by David Allen

The National Lottery shows are to be moved by the BBC to the regions, in an attempt by the BBC to transfer more programming outside London as part of its plan to boost the creative industries around the country.

At first the National Lottery will be moved to Scotland and Northern Ireland.

This means that all the lottery shows - 1 vs. 100, In It To Win It, Who Dares Wins and a brand new show which is going to be based on the Olympics, will move.

By 2016 it is estimated that around fifty per cent of the BBC’s entire output will come from outside London.

This also applies to other shows that are firmly located in regional areas - these too could be moved around to other regions.
