Although the number of film transmissions and audience size were down on 2012, the estimated value increased by approximately £66 million. This figure is derived from the annual revenue per channel – ie net advertising revenue for the commercial channels, subscription revenues for the pay TV channels and the proportion of licence fee applied to programming on the BBC channels – multiplied by the percentage of broadcast hours for feature film. 150 – BFI Statistical Yearbook 2014 – – 4,573 7,900 8,821 13,144 17,998 20,765 20,274 22,359 20,174 18,622 19,541 16,352 Total 38,865 42,682 53,568 62,807 58,554 63,168 64,355 57,684 62,509 69,592 73,005 68,732 69,866 59,542 Source: BFI RSU, Attentional Note: 2012 figures have been revised since publication of the 2013 Statistical Yearbook. i • For cinema admissions see Chapter 1 (page 10) • For more on audiences see Chapter 15 (page 157) • For an overview of the film market as a whole see Chapter 14 (page 151) Image: Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom © 2013 Long Walk To Freedom (Pty) Ltd
