Media Revolution: Title Fight

Series investigating the media revolution. Libby Potter investigates how technology, market forces and trends have changed the way books are written, published and sold.

The second of a three-part series from the Money Programme that looks at the revolution in newspapers, TV and book publishing.

Like all other areas of the media, the book business is in a process of extraordinary change. As the UK buys and reads more than ever, Libby Potter investigates how technology, market forces and trends in reading have changed the way books are written, published and sold.

Libby discovers how bestseller lists are dominated by celebrity titles and how these might now be essential to the economics of the rest of the business.

With contributions from some of the most influential people in the British book world, the film asks what will happen as the medium continues to evolve with the digital age and how this change will affect what we read and how we buy books.
