The paper seeks to articulate the presence of media from India - both as
multinational players as well as media for the Indian diaspora communities living
in the city. It attempts to analyse the implications of these global media networks
in London’s audio-visual economy, often referred to by policy makers as a
positive influence on the city’s cultural and creative industries. The context of the
paper is the significance of Indian television and film in London and the
interrelated elements of how these local developments connect with the
expansion of the media actors globally. Media and cultural clusters in urban
systems are often the local entry points of the global media corporations.
