What is Banijay UK's response?

"We have discussed the ‘Production Has Broken’ (sic) report in detail with our company leaders and Heads of Production who agree that it raises important issues.

We are consulting with our production talent to examine the concerns raised in the report internally and are liaising closely with PACT who we know are keen to engage in further discussion with representatives from the Production is Broken campaign on behalf of the independent sector. "

PiB commentary

We respect Banijay UK’s choice to defer to their trade body Pact, and hope they will encourage Pact to give the issues raised by “The Report”, due attention.

We will review progress achieved from industry approaches to Pact in the months ahead, and will endeavour to update member production companies, if progress has stalled, to encourage renewed focus.

Please refer to our statement here for more on our response to Pact’s position.
