Public Sector Broadcasting – Lessons from the BBC & UK

Speaker: Georgina Born

Georgina Born, author of Uncertain Vision: Birt, Dyke and the 
Reinvention of the BBC (2005), will be speaking at a free public 
lecture being held at the University of Technology, Sydney on Tuesday 
evening 8 August.

Born will outline the challenges faced by the BBC over the last ten 
years, including its commercial direction, organisational changes and 
embrace of digital activities and will attempt to read the ‘tea leaves’ 
for the BBC.   Parallels with Australia and what is happening in the 
Australian public sector broadcasting will also be explored. 

If you work in the media in Australia you should not miss this lecture 
from a world expert in public sector broadcasting.

and Public Service Broadcasting (PSB) in Britain and Europe, as well as 
advising public arts organizations in the UK on cultural policy and 
their relations with the PSB.
