Abstract
This paper discusses how British NGOs used a range of activist strategies to elicit greater corporate social responsibility (CSR) in support of U.K. regional and national cultures, culture-specific representations in electronic communication, and in particular, “endangered genres” in that country. It explores some of the prescient issues in this field and the .technological and industry changes that have catalyzed U.K. activists. Its primary focus is on the strategies and impact of NGO viewer and listener broadcasting advocacy groups, community media associations, coalitions, and informal groups that seek to advance indigenous culture and get government and media corporations to both respond to these stakeholders and commit to policy and regulatory changes. The chapter also references pressure group activities with respect to the current crisis in children’s television throughout the U.K.’s nations. Particular emphasis will be placed on CSR structures and vehicles for cultural expression in Scotland, Wales, the North, and other underrepresented regions and on an examination of if, and how, political devolution is intertwined with cultural agendas.
