A Future for Public Service Television

This chapter explores the extent to which ‘territorial inequalities’ in the UK are relevant to the television system and discusses the kinds of action that broadcasters have taken to address the situation. Given that television policy remains a ‘reserved’ matter for the Westminster parliament, with devolved administrations having little control over the shape and content of television, the chapter also seeks to consider whether the present arrangements are fit for purpose or whether, in the light of changing constitutional arrangements, they need to be updated and a new approach developed that more adequately serves all the population of the UK.

Keywords:   UK, public service television, territorial inequalities, television broadcasting, television policy
