A Future for Public Service Television

The MIT Press

The Inquiry into the Future of Public Service Television examined the role and purpose of public service television during what were (and remain) turbulent times for the industry. Over the course of a short but intense period in 2015–2016, the focus of members of the core team of the Inquiry was to bring together television industry professionals, civil society groups, academics, and campaigners to facilitate discussions and findings about the best way forward to ensure a robust and diverse public service ecology. While this volume goes a step further in updating research originally produced for the Inquiry with important contributions by industry professionals and international scholars, there are two issues that remain underdeveloped: the significance of the independent production sector and the contribution of non-traditional sources of public service content. This afterword discusses each of these in turn.
