The School of Media, University of Brighton, invites you to a lecture by Dr Tom Mills (Aston University), followed by Q&A.
‘The BBC: Myth of a Public Service’ asks: How free is the BBC? Is it an authentically independent and impartial broadcaster? Or is it a mouthpiece of the government, the state and the establishment? This lecture provides an overview of the scholarly evidence on the BBC’s reporting, as well as its long history from its origins in the 1920s, to the cultural upheavals of the 1960s, and its neoliberal transformation from the 1980s to the present day.
Friday 17 March, 4-6pm
University of Brighton, 154-155 Edward Street BN2 0JG.
