Abstract / Description

Public service broadcasting, what it means and how it has responded to the challenges of competition and, more recently, of digital innovation, is a topic which continues to engage those who, like me, see this form of broadcasting as an essential presence, but who have campaigned for a local, community-based contribution to the public sphere. I shall discuss the British version of this form of broadcasting and the continued attempts, largely unsuccessful as I shall argue, to apply the principles of public service broadcasting at a local level. NB. Published article in French.
