Conclusion: Towards A Moral Economy Of Independent Television Production
Published 2018 · Political Science
To conclude, this chapter reflects on the future of independent television production in a rapidly shifting digital environment, and in the context of policy changes connected to public service broadcasting (PSB) and ownership that are radically impacting the shape and structure of the indie sector. In considering the possible futures for independent television under the current conditions, the chapter makes a case for greater protection of PSB against the forces of consolidation and format emulation, so prevalent in the indie sector today. It also reflects on the implications of the longitudinal research into creative work in the indie sector presented in the book, and sets out a normative case for progressive change based on a greater understanding of creative labour.
