Principal investigator(s):

Kent Asp - University of Gothenburg, Department of Journalism Media and Communication

Abstract:

The study "Swedish TV supply" is conducted annually since 1998. The examination of the programs offered on TV is designed to answer five questions: (1) What is the range of supply in the television channels during the program year 2011? (2) What similarities and differences between the television channels' program profiles? (3) What are the programs offered for specific groups: children, youth, minorities and the disabled? (4) How has variety of programmes developed over time? (5) And how is diversity manifested in Swedish television? The study is based in principle on the information about TV programme from television channels. The programs are classified using this information and starting from a predefined classification scheme. Ten broadcast channels have been examined: SVT1, SVT2, Barnkanalen/SVT24 and Knowledge Channel, TV4, TV4 Plus / Seven, TV3, Kanal 5, TV6, TV8 and UR (the programs broadcast on SVT1 and SVT2). In this study, as in most Swedish and international studies of television programme supply from the 1950s onwards, is information-entertainment the fundamental dimension in
