TV leaders on the epidemic, impact & solutions

About this interview series

During Q2/3 2020, the Association of Commercial Television in Europe conducted a number of interviews with TV leaders across Europe to get their views on the challenges faced by Broadcasters and how they sought to serve their viewers/advertisers during this period. The interviews also cover perspectives on the future of the audio-visual sector as well as the role EU institutions can play to support media pluralism, quality news and entertainment across Europe. All twelve interviews are available in full below.
