An event at City tomorrow night:

  • Thursday, April 7 · 6:30pm – 9:30pm
  • Location: AG07, College Building, City University London, London


Globalisation is changing the way media are produced and consumed. It favours the expansion of cross-border cultural flows and opens up from within national media systems. This seminar focuses on the resulting growth of transnational media and audiences in Britain. It examines how cross-border TV channels are consumed in this country and how, in turn, the British TV content sector has adapted to the global age and learned to pro…duce for an international market.


  • Prof. Daya Thussu, University of Westminster: “News contra-flows and the ‘rise’ of Asia”
  • Prof. Christina Slade, City University: “Media and citizenship: Arabic transnational television cultures in Europe”
  • Dr Jean Chalaby, City University: “Reinventing the wheel of fortune: How British formats conquered the world”
  • Dr Andrea Esser Roehampton University: “British formats to the world: Ratings hits and primetime staple”
