Discussing the UK's Television Production at the Westminster Media Forum

Bringing together producers, broadcasters, distributors and several industry bodies, the UK television production seminar at the Westminster Media Forum is set to be an interesting opportunity for broadcast professionals to consider the emerging opportunities and challenges for the UK television production sector.

Looking at the programme, the event on Thursday 12th March will examine important topics such as the implications of increased consolidation in the UK television production market, how the entrance of global media organisations will affect investment in original UK content and the opportunities for independent producers to supply content to UK broadcasters.

The forum will also consider the future of commissioning in this new environment - with discussion on the future of in-house production at the BBC and elsewhere. Panels are set to touch upon the current issue of imploring continued investment in to independent and original programming, while maintaining the export of the best UK content.

In terms of speakers delegates can expect a great deal of knowledge. Sara Geater, executive chair of Emerald Films and chair of Pact Council; James Heath, director of policy and charter at the BBC and Adam Minns, executive director at the Commercial Broadcasters Association (COBA) have all agreed to deliver keynote addresses.
