United Kingdom: BBC Spent £310,000 on Eurovision 2012!

The BBC spent £310,000 on Eurovision according to some newspapers this morning. The information was given out by the BBC after a “Freedom Of Information” request which due to the BBC being a public broadcaster had to reply to. Per hour the contest cost £44,285 which makes it one of the cheapest shows that they produce.

“The BBC paid £310,000 for the entry into the Eurovision Song Contest in 2012″ said the broadcaster. “‘It is worth noting that as other  broadcasters contribute to the Eurovision Song Contest the BBC is able to  deliver a massive, live spectacle for a small fraction of the overall  cost. The contest provides BBC viewers with over seven hours of programming across BBC One and BBC Three, making it extremely cost effective for a prime time entertainment programme.”
