Description
Interview with an unidentified male speaker (poss. Anthony Smith) on the contents of the Annan Report on the future of the BBC and UK broadcasting, its suggestions for sponsorship and advertising on television, lack of experimental programmes at present and proposals for a fourth channel - Channel 4. The report is an attack on the so-called duopoly of BBC and ITV and may pave the way for freelance production of television programmes. Also suggestions for a Local Broadcasting Authority - may lead to a great increase in local independent radio stations. Chances of the proposals being adopted and the response of trade unions. Male interviewer not identified (poss. Vivian White). Female interviewer not identified.
