The Manchester Debate

Watching television is still the nation’s number one leisure activity, and most people in Britain still choose to get their news from the TV. However, in the digital world, the consumer is king, with many other ways to be informed and entertained. Is the old public service model for British television collapsing before our eyes? And is there still a place for public service in the world of unlimited digital choice? Director Adam Curtis was among the guests who joined The Manchester Debate to discuss these and other TV-related issues at MIF07.

Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival.
