Analysis of what Sunak’s mini budget could mean for an industry in flux


Rishi Sunak

On this week’s pod, Broadcast Intelligence lead analyst Jonathan Broughton joins senior reporter Max Goldbart and insight editor Jesse Whittock to pick apart the chancellor’s emergency summer budget and its potential impact on the TV sector. 

Half-price meals aside, Jonathan considers how the budget could have been better tailored to suit industries like broadcasting, and delivers his blueprint for how it should be done. 

 Meanwhile, the team use the opportunity to assess the current state of play, as indies desperately seek an avenue back to full production and the commercial broadcasters begin to recover their ad revenues. 

All that analysis, plus “what we’ve been watchin’” on this week’s Broadcast Newswrap.
