Creating Without Conflict report

Sample Docs - 1813kb PDF

The worlds of the media, arts and entertainment are often seen as glamorous, but a survey of 4,000 workers has revealed these industries are "hotspots" of bullying, with more than half of those questioned (56%) saying they had been bullied, harassed or discriminated against at work.
People who contributed to a survey, commissioned by the Federation of Entertainment Unions, ranged from household names, top screenwriters and performers to those at the beginning of their careers.
The results showed shocking levels of ill-treatment and inappropriate behaviour and a culture of silence, with only a third of those suffering bullying and harassment reporting the incidents.

UTV Franchise and Offcom

8 March 2013

Sample Docs - 82kb DOCX

Currently UTV produces or commissions no Drama in Northern Ireland and has not done so for many a year. This is despite it having the monopoly ITV franchise as a Broadcaster for Northern Ireland on a “peppercorn” license fee basis. With that monopoly it has become a hugely cash rich organisation, but most of the profit is distributed to its shareholders instead of investing in the local economy. We are asking that you ask questions of Ulster Television on why it produces no drama and for the Broadcaster to address that deficit.
