Support Storyville

29.07.2007

BBC’s dokumentarproduktion er truet. Internt i BBC foregår der pt en evaluering af forbindelsen mellem omkostninger og ratings, som kan betyde at det betydningsfulde dokumentarprogram Storyville, som har stået bag snesevis af fremragende film, ikke alene engelske men også udenlandske, kan ende med at blive beskåret med 60% fra det nuværende niveau på 24 mio. Dkr.

Har det dansk relevans? Absolut, for DR – uden at ville tale om denne institutions besparelser – ja selv kommercielle TV2 har i årevis øst fra den samling kunstneriske og journalistiske dokumentarfilm, som BBC’s Storyville har været en drivende kraft bag.

Hvis du vil protestere mod denne nedskæringsidé, så kan du gøre det her, også selv om du ikke er direkte beskæftiget i branchen:
