This short commentary piece arises from completing an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC)–funded research project into the relationship between representations of business on factual television in the United Kingdom and the public’s perception and understanding of entrepreneurship. What we would like to do here is reflect on some of the implications of this work with specific regard to the research agenda around the media and civic culture. We remain convinced that even in the digital age, popular television remains a central entry point into debates about the relationship between broader civic and political culture.
