Gary Beadle: 'Identity crisis' for ethnic minorities

22 January 2014 Last updated at 10:13 GMT

Culture minister Ed Vaizey is calling on the broadcasting, film and performing industries to explain why their ethnic minority representation is so low.

Simon Albury told the Today programme: "The broadcasting, film and creative industries can't be trusted to deliver diversity."

Actor Gary Beadle said: "I wouldn't use the word racism, I'd say institutionalised attitudes that just hold people back."

"There's an identity crisis out there for young ethnic minorities," he added.

First broadcast on the Today programme on Wednesday 22 January.
