Research

As part of Small Screen: Big Debate, we are carrying out an extensive programme of research and events to understand what people across the UK want and need from public service broadcasting. We will keep this section updated throughout the review.

In our most recent research, below, younger audiences tell us what content they are watching, where they are looking for it and what news and information they particularly value in uncertain times. We also show just how significantly the media environment has changed in the lifetime of today’s teenagers.

We have also produced an interactive data tool which showcases the changes in the media landscape that young people have seen in their lifetime.

Ofcom research documents

Below is a selection of some of the relevant documents published by Ofcom. We will be updating this section with some research published by other individuals and organisations shortly.
