In the past two decades, public service broadcasting (PSB) around the world has witnessed intense competition and pressure from commercial broadcasters, as well as a whole range of new media channels. How is PSB withstanding this competition and how relevant are such channels in today's society? This book explores the role of media in democratic societies and specifically that of PSB's in Asia. It presents case studies from Bangladesh, Bhutan, Kampuchea, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Macau, Sri Lanka, and Singapore. These studies document the Asian experience in PSB while exploring if there is a role that such networks are playing (or can play) in creating a civic conscious Society.
