BBC And ITV News Still Under-representing Women, Study Finds | TV News
The flagship news bulletins on both the BBC and ITV are still falling short in the eternal struggle of women’s representation. A study found that male experts still outnumber female experts on a scale of almost four to one.
The 10pm bulletin on the BBC had the least balance in the gender split of experts, 3.8 men for every women present during the show, followed very closely by the 3.6 men per women in ITV’s news. However, the study also found that the main bulletins on other news programmes like on Channel 4, Sky, and Channel 5 featured twice as many men as women.
Did anyone ever tell them the meaning of madness? Evidently not.
