BAI Sound & Vision Backs 45 Television Productions
22 Feb 2011 :
An Crisis - 2nd series in the works
The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) has announced the latest funding decisions of the tenth round of its Sound & Vision II broadcasting funding scheme. Grants of approximately €7 million are to support the production of 45 television projects – all exploring the themes of Irish culture, heritage and experience.

A variety of project types have been offered funding including documentary, drama and children’s programmes. 17 Irish/bi-lingual projects account for approximately €2.82million of the total recommended.

Michael O’Keeffe, Chief Executive of the BAI commented on the latest funding decisions, saying:“This is a significant amount of money being made available to the broadcasting sector, with the vast majority of funding being offered to independent producers. The BAI is confident that the allocation of this funding will result in the production of high quality television programmes that will be enjoyed by Irish audiences.”

The package of funding was approved, in principle, by the Authority at its meeting on 21st February following the consideration of recommendations from the assessment process which involved the input of industry and thematic experts.

The funding decisions made include support of approximately €550,000 offered to Screenworks limited for their drama ‘Amber’ for RTÉ One; €450,000 approximately for Wildfire Films for the second installment of bi-lingual drama, ‘An Crisis’ for TG4 and approximately €380,000 to Samson Films for their historical drama, ‘Titanic’ for TV3.

In total, 95 qualifying applications were received by the Authority requesting grants of €18.5 million. The BAI will now commence contract negotiations with all successful applicants. The successful projects are listed below:
