First thoughts on the OFCOM proposals

By all accounts the long awaited report by Ofcom into public sector broadcasting which has just been released is high on rehetoric but low on solutions.

It recognises that the model is broken but fails to give a solution on how to fix it.It gives ITV what it wants in terms of public service committments but fails to provide the solutions for replacing that service.

It has rejected the top slicing argument and believes that Channel 4 needs to merge but doesn't give the answer to whom it merges with,only saying that it could be BBC Worldwide or Channel 5
