If a vibrant, participatory visual culture and a democratic political process are desirable outcomes, then positive teaching is the go, not critical lamentation. The much despised popular media don’t have to ride roughshod over public good and private values, over cultural difference and diversity of identity; they can be used for whatever is wanted. The demand has to come from the populations whose media they are. Already there are models of good practice, in which integration between demographic difference and national identity can be shown to work.
WHAT ARE THE USES OF TELEVISION? This is the ‘research question’ of this book. Of course, it’s not innocent; it is already an allusion or homage to – or plagiarism of – Richard Hoggart’s most celebrated publication. Approaching the media of popular entertainment as a Left-Leavisite, Hoggart wanted to apply to them the language of literary appreciation, but was also critical of them for not often enough bringing their readers and audiences ‘the best that has been thought or said’, as Matthew Arnold’s term was then understood.
The ‘capacity’ is there in the textual system and in the technology; it’s just a matter of ‘training what to do’. But nowadays even ‘training what to do’ has changed; it is theoretically much more astute and self-reflexive than it used to be, and progressively ‘out-sourced’ by media organizations to universities who want to produce ‘graduateness’ in their students as well as ‘employability’. The workplace is increasingly characterized by ‘work’ rather than ‘jobs’ – casualized, temporary, freelance and project-based employment in a career which is itself a creative production of the individual, rather than a ‘salaryman’ job controlled by the employer.
