A city MP has hit out at the radio silence over BBC Charter renewal - with the Midlands still making less than two per cent of its TV programmes.
Steve McCabe (Lab Selly Oak) has called for answers from the Government on the consultation over the BBC Charter renewal and to confirm when the results will be published.
Meanwhile, a former Royal Television Society boss has called for the BBC to be forced to move the majority of major network commissioners outside London to address a major shortfall in investment.
Only 1.7 per cent of BBC television is made in the Midlands - a region which contributes a quarter of licence fee income.
Almost a year after the Post launched its BBC Fair Share campaign - calling for half of the £942 million this region invests in the broadcaster to be spent here - no progress has been made on increasing production.
Mr McCabe, who has campaigned for more BBC investment in Birmingham for years, was angered after hearing nothing from the Government three months after a consultation completed.
He said: "TV licence fee payers in my constituency and across the country deserve to know what is happening with the consultation on the BBC charter renewal.
"People in Birmingham and the Midlands get a raw deal for their licence fee at present and I want to know how this charter renewal will address this huge imbalance.
"The Government has had well over two months to publish the results of the consultation, we are fed up of waiting and want some answers now."
Mr McCabe has tabled a Parliamentary question demanding answers from the Government and hopes to receive an answer in the coming weeks.
Last year, for every family paying a licence fee in this region, the BBC spent just £12.40 while it invested £80 in the North, £122 in Wales and £757 in London.
It has since announced a serious of investments, largely around HR, which will take the average spend to around £20 per head.
There are currently no prime-time BBC shows created in the Midlands.
Daytime shows Doctors and historic radio soap opera The Archers are the feathers in the region's cap.
Industry expert Simon Albury, former chief executive of the Royal Television Society, was scathing about BBC investment in the regions in his evidence to the charter renewal process.
Mr Albury was a producer at the BBC and Granada Television in a career spanning more than 40 years and now chairs the Campaign for Broadcasting Equality.
He pointed out that 1.7 per cent of BBC television was made in the Midlands in 2014, down from 2.7 per cent the year before.
By comparison, 23.1 per cent was made in the North.
Mr Albury said: "To enhance the broadcasting ecology and to ensure that the nations and regions are better served in terms of on-screen representation and off-screen employment, the BBC should be required to move the majority of major network commissioners outside London and to spread its network spend equitably across the UK Nations and Regions. Talent follows money and money discovers talent."
A BBC Birmingham spokesperson said more than 130 hours of network television drama was produced a year from the city, including Doctors and Father Brown.
She added: "BBC Birmingham is also the organisation's centre of excellence for skills, recruitment and talent development and, in the last year, in difficult economic circumstances, we have spent in excess of £125 million in the region which is more than 50 per cent up on where we were a couple of years ago."
