U.K. producers see revenue jump

It’s a truism that the Australian Independent Production Industry is, in large part, neither robust nor good at exporting the real value of the talent that exists here.   In the early eighties it was in better shape thanks to the presence of Tax incentives and more innovative broadcasters.   By contrast in the UK there was effectively NO independent production industry until Channel 4 fired up in 1982.

British Governments have been pretty good at developing sophisticated policy options to develop British talent and to export their wares.   Australian Governments have not.

Here in this article from Variety are the 2007 revenue figures to the UK Independent Production industry.   We might read them and weep.
