Perhaps most important was the claim (classic in the American context) that commercial broadcasting would better be able to give the public what it wanted, via cost-effective companies tuned to consumer demand. Certainly commercial television can manifest a dynamic quality many viewers have found lacking in public service. One particular argument often put forth in support of commercial model of broadcasting is that it enhances diversity; broadcasters will `give viewers what they want'. However, the general pattern, witnessed globally, is that commercial broadcasters tend to display considerably less diversity in their programming compared to PSB.

However, the total picture is more diverse and ambiguous than to warrant a claim of Americanization or `a crisis in public communication' (Blumler and Gurevitch, 1995). The tight regulatory regime which typi®es public broadcasting seems to have rubbed off, in a way, on the programmatic output of the private channels. In that sense, the simple dichotomy between, on the one hand, private stations with purely commercial aims and entertainment programming and, on the other, public channels with a cultural-pedagogic mission, ditto programming and public ®nancing only, is too simple.

KruÈger (1998: 326) stresses the fact that homogenization and convergence between the programme output of public and private TV stations increases during prime time. Secondly, most public channels screen a higher percentage of information programmes than commercial stations. France tops the bill. Even if with some stations the information category has dropped, it still exceeds that of commercial stations, Italy being a notable exception. 5 2 8 8 * Without BSkyB. ** No comparable data available.
