Academics, the ‘cultural third mission’ and the BBC: forgotten histories of knowledge creation, transformation and impact

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This article focuses on historical dimensions of knowledge creation and transformation by university academics. It explores their often overlooked role in the broadcast output of BBC radio in disseminating knowledge and ideas outside the educational environment, directly into the homes of the audience. Examples of this activity include the Open University, schools broadcasting, armed forces programmes and study circles. The concern here is the less didactic approach encapsulated in radio documentaries, talks and discussion programmes.
