Tranter warns of BBC drama cutbacks

The head of BBC drama commissioning [Jane Tranter] has admitted she will have to start making shows on tighter budgets to meet director general Mark Thompson's 15% cost-saving target.
There's a full report of Tranter's comments in Media Guardian (free registration required).
"The new drama series commissions that come through will have to be made for less money. The cost per hour in some areas is going to go down. But it's not about working people harder to do the same amount of output. Yes, it is taxing, but for me it's about managing the mix of the drama portfolio," Ms Tranter added.
