UK indies encouraged to complete Pact/RHUL survey to measure impact of social media on UK TV Production

We are delighted to be partnering with the Adapt Social Media team from Royal Holloway, University of London (RHUL) to research Social Media and its impact on UK TV production. The results will shed light on how new business models, revenue streams and job roles are emerging in the sector and should help indies to understand the economic and creative implications for their businesses.

The survey, which launched on Wednesday 7th September 2016 will be conducted twice (a year apart) to map trends and is specifically aimed at UK indies working in the TV sector.

Please note: you do not have to be a Pact member to complete the survey.

The deadline for responses is: 6:00pm on Friday 23rd September.

Pact and the RHUL team will also be undertaking focus groups with key figures in Spring 2017 and 2018, and interim findings from the surveys and focus groups will be released to Pact members.

Broader research conclusions encompassing all the responses (including one to one interviews the Adapt team are conducting with indies, broadcasters, platforms, and social agencies) will be published in 2018 as an industry white paper.
