This is a compilation of mostly well-researched and referenced articles on public service broadcasting in Asia and crucial to any understanding of what is happening in the region. It covers Pakistan to the Philippines, Japan to Indonesia and most places in between. But more importantly it puts into print much of what has been said about public service broadcasting in recent years.
