During the seven years BBC Television Enterprises has been in business, it has expanded and developed to the extent that more and more British programmes are being sold, per year, on an international scale.

Thirty-one Commonwealth countries bought 8,350 programmes as opposed to 7,503 in 1966; to European countries, 1,809 programmes were sold, Eire being the prime purchaser; in other parts of the world, 2,814 programmes were sold - about half of which went to America - as against 1,121 last year. One reason for this increase is largely due to greater activity in dubbing; Dr Who, Adam Adamant and Jane Eyre are just three that have been translated into Arabic and Spanish.

Market research and promotional exponents are designed to produce an increase in the number of sales to schools, universities and industry in Britain and Australia; this activity is now being extended to USA and Canada.

There was an increase of 20% over the previous year in sales of stock footage and film sequences to other broadcasters and film producers. A new service only recently introduced allows for the speedy distribution of topical film stories from Panorama and Twenty-Four Hours. There are plans afoot to extend this service.

The controversial play-cum-documentary, Cathy Come Home, was sold to Belgium and Sweden between the months of March and May.
