In 2013/14, a total of 13 HETV programmes received final certification as British under the relevant cultural test (Table 18.8). The total budget was £64 million, all of which was attributed to UK spend. The number of interim cultural test approvals issued in the same period was 29, with a combined budget of £281 million and an anticipated UK spend of £254 million (90% of total budget). No co-productions received final certification in this period but three interim approvals were issued. The total budget of these productions was £27 million and the anticipated UK spend was £19 million (71% of total budget). The median budget for HETV programmes with final certification was £2.3 million.
