 TV Culture in EU Continues to be Domestic in Nature
A European Union executive revealed that people continue to watch domestic TV programs in spite of an increased number of EU-made productions.

In an annual report, the EU executive said most of the bloc's 27 states were complying with rules to offer at least 50 percent EU-made production, with almost 65 percent of shows of EU origin, according to statistics for 2009-2010.

Exceptions were Britain, Ireland and Slovenia, the European Commission said.

"However the majority of these European works are domestic works," it said in a statement, with only 8.1 percent of programmes on average made across a country's border.
