Response to the DCMS Public Consultation on the BBC Charter

The IWA has pursued an active interest in media issues for many years. In 2008 it carried out a media audit of Wales- Media in Wales: Serving Public Values – on behalf of the Welsh Government. It has repeated that audit exercise this year through its own resources. It sustains an active Media Policy Group whose membership is drawn from the media sector, academia and wider civil society.

This response to the UK Government’s public consultation on the review of the BBC Charter is informed by the results of our latest audit. The full audit report will be published in draft in October to allow for public responses. It will also be discussed at the Cardiff Media Summit on 12 November.
