Television to Call Our Own

Synopsis
Uses Canadian television as an example to raise issues of culture and identity. The government promotes national identity through strict regulations about the amount of ‘Canadian content’ while at the same time is reducing funding to public services broadcasters who are in increasingly fierce competition with US programmes. Contributors from broadcasting stations, government, the media and pressure groups expound the arguments in a debate that has relevance to many other ocuntries facing similar challenges.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
