WorldView has been commissioning and carrying out qualitative and quantitative research into the UK media landscape and documentary film industry since 2005. This body of work includes studies into the level and nature of coverage of the rest of the world on UK television, audience and industry attitudes towards and engagement with international programming, and the benefits to the public of this type of content.
WorldView research is disseminated widely amongst UK broadcasters, commissioners, policymakers and filmmakers, provoking discussion and debate around the nature and quantity of international content available to UK audiences.
