CPBF responds to Ofcom public service review

policies & issues |

Attached is the CPBF response to the Ofcom review, as trailed last week's Campaign Action News. We welcome the opportunity to respond to the Ofcom document. In particular we are pleased that Ofcom has recognised that there is a case for continued and increased public intervention to sustain and develop public service content across existing and developing forms of delivery. This is a position that the Campaign has argued for many years.

The response covers the impact of convergence, the concept of the ‘needs' of the audience, the citizen-consumer dichotomy, BBC, ITV and Channel 4, the different situations within the nations and regions and much else beside.
