The DIAMOND Project

Project DIAMOND – a new diversity monitoring system for the UK’s key broadcasters – BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky.

Project DIAMOND will collect detailed diversity data, tracked over time and benchmarked within and between broadcasters, of all those involved both on-screen and off in making programmes commissioned by British broadcasters; finally answering the question “who’s on TV and who makes it?”.

 

Idris Elba warns MPs over lack of diversity on British television on Monday and talks in support of the DIAMOND Project;

 

‘Broadcasting. Let’s make things fairer. And let’s see who’s got what. Luckily we have just the thing.

– It’s taken British Broadcasting several years to develop, but it’s called Project DIAMOND.

For the first time we’ll have hard data across the TV industry on who’s doing exactly what, where, and when. Let’s take the guesswork out of it.

Our broadcasting industry will be the first in the world to have hard data about which groups are locked inside the box.

It’ll show us which Broadcasters’ diversity policies work best. Once we know that, we can benchmark progress.

And that’s all I’m asking: let’s make some serious progress.’

For productions to get clued up in what they need to do to submit data, got to PACT
