Our Broadcasting Group (BG) represents members working in radio, TV and film.
We support members and associates by providing professional individual advice; negotiating collective minimum terms agreements with organisations such as the BBC; promoting legislation for the benefit of all members; and holding seminars and meetings on matters of concern to broadcasting writers.
We are currently campaigning to improve contract terms and specifically on issues to do with credit and fair-dealing.
We promote the best in audio drama by administering the Imison Award which members of the Broadcasting Group Committee also judge. We also co-administer the Tinniswood Award with the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain.
The Broadcasting Group works with the Publishers Licensing Society, the Personal Managers' Association, the Association of Authors' Agents, the National Union of Journalists and the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain to negotiate better terms for our members.
We support the following media campaign groups: the Voice of the Listener and Viewer and the Children’s Media Foundation.
While a committee directs the work of the group, the day-to-day administration is dealt with by the Group Secretary, Jo McCrum. Do contact Jo with any broadcasting-related topics, concerns or suggestions you wish to raise with the committee.
