Show Summary Details

Preview

This book offers an account of the major developments in television programming and policy since 1976 by collecting in a single volume the James MacTaggart Memorial Lectures delivered at the Edinburgh International Television Festival across the last quarter of a century. The MacTaggart lecturers include the most celebrated and distinguished programme makers, producers, performers, playwrights, policymakers, and senior media executives across all sectors of broadcasting. The book provides a forum for the significant debates that have helped to shape both television content and policy across twenty five years of considerable and unprecedented change in broadcasting. Topics covered include the future of public service programming, the relationship of government to broadcasters, the impact of ownership on the freedom of broadcasters, and debates about whether and how television should be regulated.
