Prof. Philip Schlesinger, CREATe’s Deputy Director, set the context for debate and chaired the session on the media in Scotland at Imagination, Scotland’s First Festival of Ideas, held at Govanhill Baths in Glasgow’s Southside on 7 September. The panel included radio producer Liz Leonard, communications consultant Alex Bell and researcher and Imagination co-producer Gerry Hassan. A highly attentive audience clearly recognised that there were no simple answers for Scotland’s media future,whether in the field of public policy or how different media markets would evolve. Whether it’s devo-max or independence after 18 September, similar questions are likely to be faced.
