About this book


In the 1990s the BBC was engaged in a process of major reform and restructuring. This was both a response to external pressures and intended to prepare the Corporation for a changing broadcasting environment. The book portrays these transitional times and investigates the major external factors that acted as a catalyst for change. Finally, the author shows what is at stake concerning the BBC’s future, and with it the future of public service broadcasting in Britain.
