THE FUTURE OF PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING
The last decade has seen both broadcast technology and the face of religious Britain evolve massively. At the same time UK audiences find they have access to more content than every before, research suggests there has been a steep decline in certain kinds of content – including children’s, arts and religious and ethical programming. Given this back drop, do we need to redefine what we mean by public service broadcasting? How do genres like children’s, arts or religious broadcasting fit into an increasingly digital world? What place is there for religious and ethical content in an increasingly multi-faith, multi-cultural Britain? Do we need targets or quotas? These questions have been at the heart of recent events, sponsored by the Sandford St Martin Trust, at the Wales Screen Summit and the Bradford Literature Festival. And we’re planning more! If you’d like to contribute to the conversation, to share your perspective or hear how broadcasters are responding to these challenges, get in touch or sign up up to our mailing list.
