‘The UK’s creative industries, which includes the film, television and music industries, are now worth £71.4 billion per year to the UK economy - generating just over a staggering £8 million pounds an hour. This is a growth of almost 10%, outperforming all other sectors of UK industry and accounts for 1.68 million jobs, 5.6 per cent of UK jobs’.
