ITV has reported adjusted profit before tax of £235m in the first six months of 2012, up 15 per cent year on year, after its production arm had a strong half-year and Euro 2012 helped net ad revenues grow three per cent.

BBC Worldwide, the commercial arm of the BBC, returned a record £216m to the BBC in the 2011/12 financial year, following the £121m sale of BBC Magazines and the business making underlying pre-tax profits of £103.5m. The firm's pre-tax profits were £103.5m in the year to 31 March 2012, a decrease of 44.9 per cent compared with the year to 31 March 2011 when BBC Worldwide's share in Animal Planet was sold to Discovery Communications.
