Description

This book represents an important contribution to the crucial issue of the alternatives in commercial and public support of broadcasting in the US and Europe. Half of the reports originated with the Peacock Committee on Broadcasting in Britain and thus have an authoritative relation to policy as well as research. The Peacock Committee of Financing the BBC, a committee sponsored by the government, commissioned Jay Blumler to investigate alternative (commercial) ways of financing in other European countries and the US to answer the question of whether the BBC should allow some commercial support in its financing.show more

Review quote

Broadcasting Finance in Transition is an extremely useful book; the authoritative discussions by its distinguished contributor make it a significant book. For once, the publishers have got it right in their 'blurb' on the jacket: 'Blumler and Nossiter have produced an essential collection for broadcast policy-makers and researchers'.'
