Abstract / Description

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.
