What is Small Screen: Big Debate?

The aim of Small Screen: Big Debate is to seek ideas and prompt discussion on how to make sure the UK has a resilient public service broadcasting system that continues to adapt to meet audience needs.

We want to understand what different audiences might want and expect from PSB. Alongside our existing research, we have commissioned additional market research and analysis, to understand what different audiences value about PSB and think is central to it, with a particular focus on younger audiences.

Public service media in the future could take many different forms which regulation should be there to support. We are looking at both the wider trends that will shape PSB and looking at different ways it could be delivered and will set out more about this in the coming months.

We have hosted events across the UK to hear as broad a range of views as possible and will continue to talk to stakeholders about options for PSB in the future. We are continuing to analyse the research we have completed so far which will help inform our consultation later in the year.

Here is some footage from some of the events we previously hosted across the UK.
