A BBC conference to bring charities and media together in one space to learn, discuss and workshop how poverty can be better portrayed on TV.
This conference will consider the portrayal of poverty on television; it is being held by the BBC, The Royal Television Society, NCVO and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
Who Benefits? will be chaired by BBC Breakfast presenter, Louise Minchin. We'll be looking at some of the reality TV and documentary programmes that have been made in poorer communities: what they are, how they are made, and why audiences watch them.
One of the aims is for charities to find out about how commissioners and programme-makers make decisions about what goes into shows. We hope producers and commissioners will tap into new and untold stories.
We also expect to reveal two new pieces of original research; one one audience attitudes to poverty and another on media use of language.
NB All tickets to Who Benefits? have now been allocated.
