BBC tight-lipped on next steps after achieving diverse content target:

The BBC has surpassed its £112 million goal for investments in diverse and inclusive content a year early but hasn’t provided a new target amount or timeline for further advancement.  

The BBC spent an additional £16.5 million in the first two years of its three-year Creative Diversity Commitment than was anticipated. It spent a total of £128.5 million to support TV and radio programmes with various narratives, personas, and production expertise. 

In the past year, the corporation allocated £61m to support 118 shows and invested £59m in 92 programs the previous year. Additionally, nearly 290 radio commissions received an extra £8.5m in funding over the past two years.

However, the BBC did not clarify whether it set a new spending target or extended the commitment’s duration. When asked about the next steps, a spokesperson stated that the BBC is determined to make further progress in 2023/24. They also revealed plans to outline proposals for 2024/25 and share more information about the commitment’s impact soon.
