Less money spent on BBC shows

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

Initially, the news that the BBC is spending less on new programming would seem to be a testament to good management, as the quality of programming is as good or as bad as it always has been and the broadcaster covers more channels with the introduction of digital TV.

However, although spending on programming is down by around 13 per cent over the past four years, that the overall cost of running the BBC has increased and therefore the TV Licence fee has to be increased in order to compensate for these extra costs.

It seems that the BBC is being called to account for this issue, as the total amount spent on new content is currently around £1.24 billion, while the BBC receives around £3.5 billion in revenues from the TV Licence fee.
