Outside the Box: Australian Television 2018


What is Television?

Ten years from now, how might we answer this question? What technological, legal, psychological and sociological factors would we need to understand?

Welcome to the web archive for Outside the Box, an Australia Research Council-funded project focusing on the question: What will Australian televsion and the society served by it look like in 2018? The archive presents the data produced by the project from 2005 to 2009, as well as links to supplementary and contextual material.
