There has long been a need for a clear description and appraisal of the work of the Peacock Committee, one of the most momentous and misunderstood events in British Broadcasting, and this book provides that important perspective. Reviewer comments –“In tracing the long and respectable history of liberal economic thinking about broadcasting and in connecting The Peacock committee directly with current debates about the internet and the notion of the ‘citizen/consumer’, this essential book also makes a fundamental contribution to our understanding of the development of British broadcasting.”.
