Extractions: Mass media: broadcasting systems Traditionally, British broadcasters have been particularly proud of their public service broadcasting , which developed under the first Director General of the BBC, Lord Reith. The term is difficult to define. One European Commissioner for Audio-visual, Information, Communication and Cultural Affairs said publicly: 'What is public service? I don't know, though it is very important to answer the question.' (Blumler ( )) So, if even he doesn't know, you shouldn't be too worried if you find the notion confusing. It is rather vaguely summarized in the mission to inform, educate and entertain . Certainly, Reith would have seen entertainment as being very definitely in third place. In his view, to the extent that the BBC was intended to entertain, it was also intended to educate listeners and viewers in matters of taste as regards entertainment. The BBC's independence from government was also close to Reith's heart. That and its reputation for 'impartiality' have certainly contributed to making the BBC respected throughout the world. However, there is always the danger that an organization funded by the government and directed by the upper-middle-class is likely to favour the government line. That, (in)famously, is what happened in the 1926 General Strike when Reith argued that the BBC was the people's service and the government was the people's choice, so it followed that the BBC supported the government.

By the early 1990s, the groundswell of political and public dissatisfaction with the privileged position of public service broadcasting entities had reached major proportion. Studies were revealing bureaucratic bungling, cost overruns, and the misuse of funds. One commission after another was recommending at least the partial dismantling or reorganization of existing institutions. New measures of accountability demanded more than idealistic rhetoric, and telecommunication policy makers were turning a deaf ear to public service broadcasting advocates. -Robert K.

INTRODUCTION National broadcasters funded out of the public purse have historically formed a vital component of the broadcasting sector in most countries and the rationale for these broadcasters which can offer alternative programming to that provided by the commercial sector remains strong. At the same time, two key issues continue to pose a threat to the success of publicly-funded broadcasters. The first is ongoing attempts in many countries by the governing authorities to exert control over such broadcasters, undermining their independence and the quality of their news and other programming. The other is the ever-present desire of governments to cut budgets, which has resulted in increased pressure on the level of public funding received by these broadcasters, and a consequent search for alternative sources of funding. This study looks at the way in which national, publicly-funded broadcasters are organised and paid for in six countries where support for these broadcasters remains strong, namely Australia, Canada, France, Japan, South Africa and the United Kingdom. The focus is on the legal and practical arrangements under which these broadcasters operate, including broadcasting obligations, governance structures and funding arrangements. The study pays particular attention to the ways in which these countries have dealt with the threats noted above, namely how they have guaranteed the editorial independence of these broadcasters, while at the same time ensuring their accountability to the public and providing them with public funds.

FEATURES OF PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING ORGANISATIONS State-funded broadcasters exist in almost every country in the world. Only some of these, however, conform to the standards commonly associated with public service broadcasting. This section outlines the attributes which have come to be associated with public service broadcasting organisations. Public service broadcasting organisations are generally associated with a number of features, derived in large part from the guarantee of freedom of expression, as outlined below. In addition, these features flow from the fact that public funds are being spent on broadcasting which engages certain general principles relating to public spending.

This group may be the public in general or a relatively large audience within the public in general.

He is most commonly referred to as Lord Reith Born at Stonehaven in Scotland, Reith received his education at Glasgow Academy and at Gresham's School, Holt. He became an engineer and then on December 14 1922 the General Manager (later Director-General from January 1 1927 to June 30 1938) of the infant BBC. He expounded firm principles of centralised, all-encompassing radio broadcasting, stressing programming standards and moral tone.

For example, one of the things which has struck me most forcibly since I took over this job is the opposition there has been to new digital BBC services which we felt were undeniably at the heart of our traditional Reithian remit.
