New book on transformations in ownership in the TV production sector by Gillian Doyle and fellow CCPR authors published.

Television Production in Transition book coverA new book on transformations in ownership in the TV production sector by Professor Gillian Doyle and fellow authors Richard Paterson and Dr Kenny Barr has been published. 
 
Focusing on the growing power of transnational media corporations in an increasingly globalized environment for distribution of television content, and on the effects of mergers and acquisitions involving local and independent television production companies, 'Television in Transition' examines how current and recent re-structurings in ownership across the television industry reflect changing business models, how they affect creativity and diversity of television output, and to what extent they call for new approaches to regulation and policy. Based on a major ESRC-funded study of the UK production sector led by Gillian Doyle, the new book offers a unique analysis of wider transformations in ownership affecting the television production industry worldwide and of their economic, socio-cultural and policy implications.
