Produxion.com, the website for the TV production industry, has

added Barb ratings access to its content.



The ratings will be available at no charge, just ten days after the week

they represent. The data features display summaries of the top ten

programmes and at-a-glance graphics to aid fast analysis.



Barb provides ratings in a number of formats but to get quick access

usually requires a subscription.



Produxion’s newly appointed head of marketing Tina Kumara said: ’We will

be providing a comprehensive analysis of channel genre and programming

slots for terrestrial, cable and satellite TV.’



Other features of the site are breaking industry news from Broadcast and

a comprehensive directory of freelancers, production companies and

service providers. It also contains employment vacancies, a market place

for the trading of production equipment, updates on broadcast

regulations and free e-mail.



Since its launch in January, the site has received more than 6,000

registrations and gets in excess of 125,000 page impressions a week.



Produxion is a joint venture between Emap, Channel 5 and Netdecisions.
