Future Broadcasting Regulation

Categories: Further Reading & Research, Support Material
Date: January 2007

Future Broadcasting Regulation is a report by Robin Foster commissioned by the UK’s Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

From the report’s introduction:

This report was commissioned by the DCMS as a think piece to help stimulate and inform the important debate about future changes in the policy and regulatory framework for UK broadcasting and other electronic media. It develops four contrasting scenarios for the future of broadcasting in the UK, and examines some of the broad policy and regulatory implications which flow from those different scenarios. It focuses on the 5-10 year time horizon rather than the near term, and on broad trends and challenges, rather than the detailed design of broadcasting regulations. The intention is to stimulate wide discussion and debate of the key issues, as part of the preparation for a potentially very different broadcasting environment in the UK after the completion of digital switchover.
