Tranter: TV drama budgets at breaking point

From Ben Dowell in Media Guardian:
The departing BBC Fiction controller, Jane Tranter, has said today that budgets for British television drama are at breaking point and that broadcasters are in danger of showing "theatre and not television".

Tranter added that the majority of drama is made is at the limit of "what we can ask the production teams to do" and that "budgets cannot keep on falling".

She said: "There's really not much more we can cut without endangering not just the quality of the work, but also the quality of the lives of the people who work on these things."
