Date:1 May 2009
Subject:Digital innovation, Funding, Supporting the arts sector
Area:London, Midlands, National, North, South East, South West

In January 2009, the Government published Digital Britain, a plan to secure Britain’s place at the forefront of the global digital economy. The interim report contains more than 20 recommendations, including specific proposals on:

  • next generation networks
  • universal access to broadband
  • the creation of a second public service provider of scale
  • the modernisation of wireless radio spectrum holdings
  • a digital future for radio
  • a new deal for digital content rights
  • enhancing the digital delivery of public services

The interim report has significant implications for arts broadcasting and public service content. We, on behalf of the arts sector, have responded with consideration to the proposals with two submissions - a response to the interim report, and also a response to the idea of a digital rights agency.
