A drive has been launched to make the UK an affordable location for the production of big-budget television shows, animation and video games.


It is hoped the planned tax relief move by the Treasury will stem a recent exodus of drama-making from the UK, which has seen small-screen productions such as The Tudors and (Lord) Julian Fellowes' drama Titanic shot overseas. In contrast, film-makers in the UK have enjoyed tax relief since 2007.
