Coast will move production base from Bristol to Cardiff
BBC Two series Coast will move to Cardiff next year as part of plans to build a stronger production base in the city.
The tenth series of the programme, presented by Nick Crane, will have its production base in the Welsh capital when it resumes filming in March.
But the move comes just over a year after the programme was moved to Bristol from Birmingham's Mailbox. Only one series of Coast has actually been made from Bristol since the relocation.
Bargain Hunt will also move to Cardiff from Bristol in August, it was announced earlier this year.
A BBC spokesperson said: 'This [move] is part of the BBC's ambition to strengthen existing and new creative partnerships between teams in Bristol and Cardiff. Bristol remains an important multi-genre production base delivering high end and hugely popular factual output'.
Although Coast's production base will move to Cardiff, it's expected that certain resources will be shared with Bristol in the future, given its close proximity to the Welsh city.
Coast's relocation in 2012 was part of a larger strategy to move factual TV and Radio 4 programmes from the Mailbox to Bristol and Salford, announced as part of DQF.
Countryfile, Hairy Bikers and See Hear also moved their production base out of the Mailbox in the same year.
At the time there was a belief that Birmingham would become a media 'ghost town', with strikes staged by staff in protest.
It was recently announced that the BBC would invest £23m in Birmingham to make it a centre for new skills and digital innovation.
