Ofcom imposes content quotas on the BBC

Ofcom is to strengthen the rules for original UK content on the BBC.

From next year the regulator, whose responsibilities now extend to the corporation, will require at least three quarters (75 per cent) of all programme hours on the BBC’s most popular TV channels to be original productions, commissioned by the BBC for UK audiences – reaching 90 per cent during ‘peak’ evening hours on BBC One and BBC Two.
