Description
A report by Robin Foster commissioned by the DCMS to help stimulate and inform debate about future changes in the policy and regulatory framework for UK broadcasting and other electronic media. It develops four contrasting scenarios for the future of broadcasting in the UK, and examines some of the broad policy and regulatory implications which flow from those different scenarios. It focuses on the 5-10 year time horizon rather than the near term, and on broad trends and challenges, rather than the detailed design of broadcasting regulations. The intention is to stimulate wide discussion and debate of the key issues, as part of the preparation for a potentially very different broadcasting environment in the UK after the completion of digital switchover.
