Abstract
This paper is basically a brief compare and contrast study regarding two different lines of development with regard to the European film and television production sector which has taken place in Europe during the last three decades.

This paper is basically a brief compare and contrast study regarding two different lines of development with regard to the European film and television production sector which has taken place in Europe during the last three decades.

On the other, the aims, effects and consequences of the movement of creative industries policy, emanating from the efforts of the British New Labour Government in the late 1990s as well as from certain academics, before being dispersed “virally” is reviewed. The paper ends with a brief concluding discussion assessing portions of the respective developments. This final part is inspired by globalization theories about neo-liberalism, neo-mercantilism and the rise of international governance put forward by British sociologists Richard Giulianotti and Roland Robertson in their work Globalization and Football (2009).
