Denmark was highest achiever, with its networks offering 84.8 percent of shows made across the 27-nation bloc. France had 71.7 percent, Luxembourg 70.7 and Belgium 69.1 percent.

All EU member nations were up to scratch regarding a separate EU regulation calling on networks to offer 10 percent of time or of their programme budgets to independent productions -- they accounted for an average 34.1 percent of TV time across the EU.
