The Future of S4C

Response to the consultation

Evidence submitted in response to this Consultation

Purpose of the consultation

The Culture, Welsh Language and Communications Committee held an inquiry into the future of S4C.

The Committee looked at the following issues:

  • What sufficient funding for the channel looks like. For example, who should provide it, and how should it be calculated – should it be linked to a formula? How should this be supplemented with revenue raised by S4C?
  • What S4C’s statutory remit should be. Is its current remit fit for a contemporary broadcaster, and if not, how should it change? How should it reflect the digital role of a modern broadcaster?
  • What governance and accountability structures S4C should have in place. For example, should responsibility for S4C be devolved to Wales?
  • What S4C’s relationship with the BBC should look like.
  • The visibility of S4C: covering issues such as S4C’s prominence on the electronic programme guide and smart TVs.
