BBC "should do more for British films"

The BBC says it should look at whether it is doing enough to support the UK film industry, reports BBC News.
At a select committee hearing in the House of Commons on Tuesday, the BBC said it was time to "rebalance" the schedule in favour of UK films.

BBC Director General Mark Thompson said the corporation should also think about giving more money to the industry.

The UK Film Council welcomed the BBC's comments, but said any improvements were "long overdue".
