Part of the panel 'Producing TV Drama in Small Nations: negotiating place and policy':
For small nations the television industry, and in particular its drama output, performs a number of important cultural, political and economic functions. However, several structural challenges shape their television industry including less access to talent, fewer capital resources, higher production costs and a smaller market for advertising and license fee revenue. Therefore, this panel explores the various possibilities and challenges arising for broadcasters and production companies from small nations when they become actors in the international market for drama content. In doing so the panel will explore the ways in which ‘place’ is mobilised for both commercial and creative purposes, and how policy-makers have responded to the tensions between market orientation on the one hand and maintaining local investment and support on the other. Across all of the papers the role of public service broadcasters' activities in the local and international market is an important feature. Collectively, these papers provide a richer understanding of how local, national and global logics shape the current production ecology of drama production in small nations.
