How should the BBC be funded? Lords ask academics and sector experts
The Communications and Digital Committee’s inquiry into BBC future funding continues, looking at the economic and broader social rationale for public service broadcasting.
Possible questions and areas for discussion with witnesses include:
- How have the notions of ‘public purpose’ and ‘public value’ changed over time with regard to broadcasting?
- Should the BBC’s main purpose be to fix market failures?
- What role does the BBC play in stimulating the creative industries?
