BBC Pulls Out Of Neighbours Bid..

Recommended Posts

Guest Durrty Boi Part II
The BBC has pulled out of a bidding war for Australian daytime soap Neighbours.BBC One controller Peter Fincham, who broke the news on the BBC's One O'Clock News, said the broadcaster had been asked to pay "roughly three times" what it had previously paid, amounting to £300 million over eight years.Fincham said it was too early to discuss what would replace the programme.The show has appeared on BBC One since 1986, but the BBC said the new offer for the show was an "an unrealistic price demand," and the cost "would have compromised our ability to invest in new original programmes."Neighbours currently pulls around 3 million viewers for its 1.35pm lunchtime showing and around 2.6 million for its 5.35pm repeat.ITV and Five are understood to be in talks with Fremantle, the RTL subsidiary that distributes Neighbours, about acquiring the soap.
their contract runs out end of next year
