 Reinventing Public Service Broadcasting for the Digital Future 


 Since the 1980s there has been much speculation about the demise of
public service television, initially because of the advent of cable and
satellite television and the variety of entertainment channels they
offer. While the proliferation of global niche media in the digital age
might seem to accelerate the demise of public television, in reality,
public broadcasters are undergoing a reinvention. Profiling the
reinvention of six television broadcasters as cross platform media
providers, this seminar will outline the extensive capabilities of new
media for delivering diverse public service goals, and in engaging with
digital era's new risks and challenges.  This seminar will draw on
industry research interviews undertaken with staff from across the six
broadcasters which as a group represent the broad possibilities of the
public service model
