Is there a future for ITV?

Monday 15 May

Global as well as domestic pressures are forcing the ITV network and the companies that comprise it to rethink their role. Can the federal structure of ITV survive?

The panel for this free, public debate will include:

  • Peter Bazalgette, creative director at the Guardian Media Group, and Endemol Entertainment plc;
  • Barry Cox, deputy chairman of Channel 4;
  • Patricia Hodgson, BBC director of public policy;
  • Clive Jones, chief executive of Carlton Television;
  • journalist Brenda Maddox.

Taking the chair will be BBC and ITV broadcaster Richard Lindley.

The debate has been organised by Media@lse, the LSE's media teaching and research programme, and co-sponsored by The Media Society, the ITV Network Centre and the LSE's alumni Media Group.
