Public Service Broadcasting: Annual Report 2009
This is the third in our series of Public Service Broadcasting Annual Reports, Ofcom’s statistical evidence base for assessing the delivery of public service broadcasting (PSB).
The designated PSB broadcasters are the BBC, Channel 3/ITV1, GMTV, Channel 4, Five, S4C and Teletext1 . The report is intended to provide an up-to-date evidence base of the current delivery of public service content in the UK and gives a factual account of broadcast hours, viewing figures and audience opinions of the channels over the last five years. We have also included some spend figures for the first time, to show trends in investment in public service content.
