How Much Web Drama for £1.3m?

From FutureScape:-

"That was the question we posed last week to British Web producers, following Jane Tranter’s announcement that the BBC had earmarked £1.3m for online drama.

The initial reactions were sceptical. From Tim Wright at XPT, creator of the BAFTA award-winning Online Caroline: "So how many original online dramas can you make for £1.3m? one? thirteen? twenty-six? ;-) "

And in the comments, Garret Keogh, Director of Content, digital department of RDF Media: "I was thinking the same as Tim. You don't get a lot of drama for £1.3 million. Even in the digital space."
Futurescape invited some other producers to share their opinions of what’s feasible...
