Digital Britain Report

Department for Culture, Media, Sport, Department for Business and Innovation Skills 2009

The Digital Britain Report is the Government’s strategic vision for ensuring that the UK is at the leading edge of the global digital economy. It is an example of industrial activism in a crucial growth sector.

The report contains actions and recommendations to ensure first rate digital and communications infrastructure to promote and protect talent and innovation in our creative industries, to modernize TV and radio frameworks, and support local news, and it introduces policies to maximize the social and economic benefits from digital technologies.

It also looked at a wide range of issues including the treatment of news in the nations, locally and in the regions. This included a commitment to independently funded news consortia.
