Also, following Boris Johnson's leadership challenge, our media pundits explore what political instability could mean for the broadcasting policy in the pipeline.

Plus TV-critic Scott Bryan shares his telly recommendations from British broadcasters and global streamers.

And in the Media Quiz we find out who’s been trailblazing in the industry this week.
