Recovery In the UK

The British film industry appears to be on the road to recovery after a dismal year in which investment fell off, writers and actors strikes (or the threat thereof) stalled production, and producers took their projects elsewhere. But things are definitely looking up: “More than £280m has been invested in the UK by foreign film companies so far this year compared to £230.4m in 2001, according to the Film Council, the government body which promotes the industry.”
