VLV response to DCMS proposals to increase Channel 4 regional impact

VLV canvassed its members to inform its response to DCMS proposals that Channel 4's HQ should move out of London and that its quotas for the English regions should be raised.

Having considered the options, VLV has opposed moving the Channel 4 HQ out of London but agrees that out of London quotas should be raised to reflect existing delivery of this quota.

VLV believes it is crucial that Channel 4 reflects life in the nations and regions and ensures it does all it can to support the growth of independent production companies from across the UK, so we have encouraged Channel 4 to become more engaged with producers in the nations and regions, possibly by having  a greater presence outside London.
