Laurie Ouellette, Viewers like you? How public TV failed the people

Lewis, Justin Matthew Wren 2010. Laurie Ouellette, Viewers like you? How public TV failed the people. International Journal of Cultural Policy 16 (1) , pp. 43-44. 10.1080/10286630903029666

I’ve chosen Laurie Ouellette’s analysis of the birth of Public Television in the USA for three reasons. First, it is a first class piece of research based on the principle that if we are to learn from history, we need to understand its nuances. Second, it speaks to one of the most pressing issues in contemporary cultural policy – the increasing commercialisation of the cultural sphere. Third, the book offers a vision of cultural policy that moves us beyond a stale debate – one that has so often been the battleground for cultural policy – between worthy, Reithian notions of public culture and commercial populism
