Manchester lures TV producers north

TV - TV and film-making industry is growing faster outside London - SantanderCB

A report from Amion Consulting for Creative England and Manchester City Council has found that the TV and film-making industry is growing faster outside London than in the capital. Over the period 2010-14, out-of-London production rose from 39% to 48% of the UK total by value, and above 50% by volume. Around half of that was in the north. In Manchester, a disused computer centre has become the city's new drama factory, home to shows such as Houdini and Doyle and Deutschland '83. The Space Project site has only been open for a year but is already doubling in size with financial help from the city council. Space has already supported 250 jobs and pumped an estimated £9m into the local economy.
