As an ex-media studies student, I gained a fairly healthy interest in the workings of the broadcast media. Forget the programmes, far more interesting is the alliances, rivalries, behind-the-scenes wranglings, and general skulduggery between the various companies that run British television. Bearing that in mind, here is a list of all the best sites on this sort of subject:
