I’ve written before on this blog about my fondness for public radio, middle-aged though it may be.
And living as I have in the U.K. for three and a half years, I’ve grown particularly fond of BBC Radio and BBC Television – both of which I think of as gems of adulthood, not to be missed. (As a friend puts it, it’s where you go to watch “proper grown-up telly.” Amen.)
But, like everything, publicly funded broadcasting in the U.K. must adapt to both the forces of the market and to the digital age.
Today, I’m over on PoliticsDaily.com talking about a recent, much-publicized Strategy Review of the BBC here in the UK and the philosophical debates it has opened up over the meaning and viability of public service broadcasting going forward.
Have a look…
