The media landscape in Bhutan offers many opportunities as well as challenges for those involved in reform. For a country which introduced television as recently as 1999, and which until a couple of years ago had only one (state-owned) newspaper, the spurt in media-related activity, especially since the advent of popular democracy in 2008, has been striking. It is not surprising, therefore, that attention has now turned to strengthening public service broadcasting in this Himalayan idyll.
