In 2003 their was a significant increase in the licence fee, the new fee was now €150 a jump of €43 from the previous level of €107, this means that the licence fee is now RTE’s main source of funding along with commercial advertising/sponsorship revenues as well as the TV licence fees.
The main objectives of this funding is,
-To support the production of high-quality radio and television programmes based on Irish culture, heritage and experience.

-To develop such programmes in the Irish language.

-To increase the availability of programmes on Irish culture, heritage and experience to audiences in the State and support programmes that aim to explore these themes in innovative ways.

-To support programmes that represent the diversity of Irish.culture and heritage.

-To develop local and community broadcasting through support for the production of programmes by this sector.

-To support programmes aimed at improving adult literacy.

The core objectives of the Broadcasting Funding Scheme is to increase public
access at national, local and community level to high-quality radio and
television programmes in English and Irish which explore the themes of Irish
culture, heritage and experience, in contemporary or historic contexts .

I do not believe that what RTE broadcasts is entirely public sector broadcasting in that they provide a comprehensive range of programmes, in irish and in English, which reflect the cultural diversity of Ireland.

RTE is specially mandated to supply
-Programmes that entertain, inform and educate.
-Programmes of news and current affairs.
-Coverage of sporting, religious and cultural activites.
-Coverage of the oireachtas and European Parliament.
As these four points are usually met a lot of the funding is siphoned of to gain access to international televsion.

Despite this, gaps between different cultures still exist, especially for older immigrants, no matter how well they have assimilated. The cultural and lif

    THE CANADIAN HISTORY OF IMMIGRATNT WORKERS Canadian labour history is tainted by hatred, discrimination and fear of immigrant workers and immigration. This stems in part from Government sponsored racism and the capitalistic use of immigration as a means to defy the labour movement. We can start with the stereotyping and discrimination of the Irish in the 1840’s, our first large scale exploitable labour pool and move right through to today’s racial profiling and cultural unacceptance of Arabs and east Indians. Through our history the acceptance of immigrants gradually improve but even today
