“Gogglebox presents people like us and is made in Britain for Britain”

I knew I’d seen a good defence of Channel 4’s Public Service Broadcaster remit, but I couldn’t remember where until I visited the VLV website earlier and saw this [pdf] from Channel 4’s CEO Alex Mahon.

“Online business cannot fill gaps in our culture and the SVODS will not do that. PSB looks at culture/programmes from the inside-out and SVODs look at it from the outside-in. Example: Gogglebox v Tiger King. It is obvious that Gogglebox presents people like us and is made in Britain for Britain. Tiger King isn’t.”
