About the Programme

Who designs the spaces and places designed for television broadcast into our homes? And why are they designed the way they are? What is it we are being shown, and what is it we are not being shown?

Over three half-hour programmes, Mediated Space examines three intersections between London’s architecture and its broadcast media. From New Broadcasting House to Alan Sugar’s boardroom via a panoramic view of East London, these three programmes will weave politics, economics and cultural theory to explore everyday spaces and places that are real and fabricated.

This programme is authored by Dr. James Benedict Brown of Leicester School of Architecture, De Montfort University and co-produced with The Arts & Culture Unit.

It will be broadcast as part of the second series of Modulations: Broadcasting Research in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, on Resonance 104.4fm.
