Delegates will discuss key issues for the future of broadcasting policy in the UK in the context of the Broadcasting White Paper: Up next - the Government’s vision for the broadcasting sector.
This is the first in a planned series of conferences on the complex issues raised in the Broadcasting White Paper.
For this opening conference, the agenda is structured to bring out an overview of latest thinking on:
- the way forward for policy - the future for UK regulation and its scope
- the developing media landscape - priorities for UK broadcasters - options for support - key issues for plurality and competition in the UK and globally
- public service broadcasting - role and future - economic models - the future for Channel 4 - the television licence fee - key issues for the BBC Mid-Term Review and the direction of the Corporation
- reflecting UK society - serving the interests of citizens, consumers and those working in the sector - ‘distinctively British’ content - diversity - regional and national representation
- on-demand services - key issues - value exchange - market development - options for policy and regulatory frameworks
We are pleased to be able to include keynote sessions with Clare Sumner, Director, Policy, BBC; Emily Davidson, Head of Policy and Public Affairs, Channel 4; and Patrick Holland, CEO, Banijay UK.
The conference will be an opportunity for stakeholders to consider the issues alongside key policy officials who are due to attend from the DCMS; NAO; and Ofcom - as well as parliamentary pass-holders from the House of Lords.
