Reflecting post-devolution politics in broadcasting


12th November 2019

Cardiff University

A team from the School of Journalism, Media and Culture analysed more than 4,500 new items across a range of BBC television, radio and online outlets in 2007. They found that broadcast news failed to reflect the devolved political landscape. The research was used to inform the King Report, as well as being published by the BBC Trust as part of that report. The King Report adopted the main findings and recommendations, urging the BBC to improve coverage to more accurately reflect post-devolution politics in the UK.
