Cast in Wales
Equity is calling on the entertainment industry and governments to invest in programmes made in Wales.
Members are frustrated at not getting local opportunities, particularly because they believe there is a wealth of talent outside of London.
According to Ofcom, 61.8% of spending by public service broadcasting channels in 2010 went to productions made within the M25. Productions in Scotland received 4.6% of spending, Wales 2.6% and Northern Ireland 0.4%.
