Top producer laments radio drama cuts

From The Stage:
Former World Service drama head Gordon House has lamented the broadcaster’s decision to axe the 14 plays it broadcasts annually, claiming they provide a global showcase of the UK’s writing and acting talent.

The plays form the majority of the station’s regular drama output and House, who worked as the station’s head of drama until 2000, described the World Service’s decision to axe the plays from 2011 as “very sad”. He claimed actors and writers would lose a valuable source of employment as a result.

    A bloody disgrace.

    I wonder how the World Service drama budget compares with the budget for some of the 'reality' shit on BBC TV? Or the salary of some jerk like Jonathan Ross?
