Book Description

Richard Collins explores public service television's role in fostering pan-European cultural identity. Based on extensive primary research, interviews with participants and analysis of key European programmes, this book documents the growth of the public service satellite television network which was backed by the European Union, and its eventual alliance with Rupert Murdoch's commercial Sky network.

Reviews

'A comprehensive and impressive account of the ill-fated endeavours to establish a pan-European broadcaster ' - David Ward, University of Westminster

'Collins has written a timely and important book, which is the result of over a decade reviewing satellite and European audio-visual policy' - David Ward, University of Westminster, Media, Culture and Society
