The BBC and a Digital Public Sphere
The BBC’s charter is due for renewal soon after the General Election. Licence fee funded public service broadcasting is again being questioned. Tony Ageh OBE, BBC’s Controller of Archive, will outline how the BBC’s huge archive of programmes can be used to enhance the BBC’s public service role. There will be a response from Dr Anna Whitelock, Centre for Public History, Heritage and Engagement with the Past (Royal Holloway).
