SS:BD videos

As part of our nationwide debate on the future of public service media, we have held industry events across the UK, including our three-day SS:BD Virtual Conference in October 2020. You can watch footage of some of these events below.

#SSBD2020 virtual conference – October 2020

Between 5-7 October, we held a virtual conference looking at the big questions facing public service broadcasting in the 2020s.

Through a series of panel discussions and interviews with senior figures across the broadcasting world, we examined what PSB needs to do to connect with audiences today, the role it plays in supporting diversity on- and off-screen, the contribution it makes to the UK’s creative industries and how a public service system can continue to be funded.

Over three days, producers, commissioners and commentators, alongside the leaders of the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5, ITN, ITV, Ofcom and STV, told us what they thought the future held for public service broadcasting in the UK.
