So C4 is discriminating, then.Posted elsewhere and not the BBC per se, but a clear combat indicator for the direction of travel broadcast media wise.
On the subject of "diversity".
I sit on the council of a national charity. In order to publicise the work of the charity we have attracted a TV production company who are pitching a series on our work to Ch4. Who are very keen.
So far so good.
The Council met on Tuesday for a regular board meeting and were briefed, by the producer and presenter (a reasonably well known person)
Long story short the production company have now been appraised of the Ch4 diversity requirement. Part of which, and this apparently was in writing, was that no new programme or production would be comissioned or broadcast unless either the main presenter, or co-presenter, was BAME.
Full stop. No ifs or buts. Not implicit, not quietly spoken about , but there, specific and written policy. And by BAME what they really mean is B.
