My mathematical deductions/short anaylsis of the chances of success for writers sending spec scripts to the BBC Writer's Room. Data taken from an article published in Ariel (BBC internal weekly paper) on the 10th of August 2010. BBC Writer's Room 10,000 scripts read per year, 200 participants hired since 2000. THUS: 200 over 10 years = 20 successful people per year. 10,000 / 20 = 1 success for every 500 scripts. OTHER POINTS OF INTEREST: 'it's a place you can send stuff. There's nowhere else where you can send stuff.' - Jack Thorne Responses to submitted scripts can take up to one-year.
