Focusing on the growing power of transnational media corporations in an increasingly globalized environment for distribution of television content, and on the effects of mergers and acquisitions involving local and independent television production companies, this book examines how current and recent re-structurings in ownership across the television industry reflect changing business models, how they affect creativity and diversity of television output, and to what extent they call for new approaches to regulation and policy. Based on a major ESRC-funded empirical study of the UK-based production sector as a case study, it offers an original and ground-breaking analysis of wider transformations in ownership affecting the television production industry worldwide and of their economic, socio-cultural and policy implications.
