The future for UK public service broadcasting – relevance, representation, resources, reach, viability, and priorities for policy and regulation

This full-day conference is taking place in the context of the DCMS Committee report – The Future of Public Service Broadcasting – which was published in March this year, and made a range of recommendations aimed at enabling PSB to compete more effectively with on-demand streaming services, including proposals for increased collaboration among public service broadcasters.

Sessions in the agenda look at:

  • The Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee inquiry into the future of public service broadcasting – key recommendations and implications for policy and practice, and next steps going forward
  • Resources for PSB – support and investment needs, exploring avenues for revenue and funding, and addressing the future of the licence fee
  • Viability of public service broadcasting in a digital age:
    • lessons from relocating – the impact on relevance and service
    • implementing new strategies for innovation
    • collaboration and the way forward for competing in an international market
  • Latest thinking from Small Screen: Big Debate – examining options for modernising the existing PSB framework
  • Authentic representation in public service broadcasting – priorities for diversity, accountability, leadership, and supporting the production of national and regional content
  • The road ahead for public service broadcasting
