ITV and Five cut jobs

With advertising revenues falling sharply, both ITV and Five are cutting jobs.

Drama output on ITV is being reduced from eight hours per week to seven.

With production of Heartbeat and The Royal now on hold, ITV Yorkshire's Leeds studios will be closed, with the loss of 192 jobs. As The Yorkshire Post reports, its the end of 40 often glorious years of programme-making.
