Polis and Oxfam have a report out on the future of international coverage (not just news) by public service broadcastes.
It warns that there is the danger that international coverage will decrease under the new PSB regime being worked out by Ofcom and the DCMS. It shows how broadcasters don't have strategies in place to stop this happening. It also argues that we need more international coverage, not less, because global issues such as finance, climate change and migration matter more to us all.
The report was written by former broadcasting executive Phil Harding. Read his article in today's Guardian here, listen to theToday Programme discussion here, and read the full report here.
