This chapter analyses two case studies on public broadcasting in Germany and the UK. The case studies demonstrate several examples of actors at local and sectoral level taking initiatives to resolve apparent deficiencies for their purposes in the ‘normal’ national array of institutions. A particular surprise of the finding is that in doing so both German and British film and television makers have occasionally, usually by chance, hit on institutions more typical of the other country.
