Description

The equality campaigner said that “revolutionary” change was needed to address the “appalling” lack of BAME representation in the industry. Sir Lenny called for money in the shape of “Catalyst Funds” to be written into the Charter to spread “diversity throughout the industry”. Pointing to recent figures from the Skillset census which showed that BAME representation stood at just 5.4per cent in the creative industries, Henry said: “Let’s change the charter, let’s change history and let’s change the television industry forever.”
