Creative Scotland secures four new broadcasting partnerships

Arts, screen and creative industries development agency Creative Scotland today (9 March) announced it has secured significant partnerships with the country’s major broadcasters.

BBC Scotland, Channel 4, STV and MG Alba have each agreed a programme of work which focuses on increasing investment in Scotland’s independent television production companies, investing in and promoting Scottish talent and bringing home-grown culture into every home in Scotland.

Announcing the partnerships, Caroline Parkinson, Director of Creative Development, Creative Scotland, said:

‘I am delighted by the wholehearted support from the broadcasters to developing partnerships with Creative Scotland. Not only will this bring more coverage of Scotland’s cultural offering to every home in Scotland, but will stimulate independent production and further cross-collaboration between Scottish talent, producers, writers and crews. Projects we collaborate on will promote Scottish creative content to broadcasters in the UK and internationally - these partnerships are a milestone toward accelerating growth in Scotland’s production sector.’
