This chapter examines the linkages and tensions between public knowledge and popular culture, and between the media and cultural studies, describing the flows and forms of public knowledge and highlighting the case of British television as an example. It suggests that the flows and the spaces of the dominant popular culture frequently shape the contexts in which versions of the public as a communicational principle with entailments for knowledge production, circulation and exchange are now defined and operated. The chapter also argues that the terms upon which the popular is constructed are not beyond the possibility of crisis, and certainly contain internal contradictions.
