We have just received confirmation that Ofcom has accepted our proposed changes to our key commitments. These will be published in the Ofcom Broadcasting Bulletin shortly.
The changes have no material effect on our ouput but they spread the measurement period over a full week as opposed to being commitments for every single day, 365 days a year. We still need to keep up the amount of original programming and locally produced output (which of course is exactly what the Board feels we should be doing) but we get some leeway on days where the unexpected occurs (like unplanned absences). Previously, we could have been in breach due to one day in a week where we over-achieved on all the other days.
Attached are the new Key Commitments.
