Working for Television — the Experience of Censorship and Control

  • Andrew Goodman
Part of the Critical Social Studies book series


Why are so few programmes that can be called, even in a vague sense, socialist broadcast on British television or radio? Perhaps the best way to answer this question is to follow the career of a hypothetical person, with strong socialist principles, trying to get a job producing programmes for B.B.G. T.V. Most of what follows would apply to working for the I.T.V. programme companies, or for radio. I have concentrated on the B.B.C. and television because it is where the bulk of my personal experience lies, and where the structure and the limitations of British broadcasting can be seen at their starkest.
