In our work for the BBC Trust we conducted an economic review of the extent to which the BBC crowds out private sector activity. This was specifically aimed at whether the BBC crowds out private sector provision of broadcasting and whether their website crowds out the provision of local news by local and regional newspapers. This involved an extensive review of available literature, as well as an econometric analysis to diagnose the extent to which the BBC crowds out private sector activity in the markets of interest.
