The main recommendation of the report Broadcasting and Youth, published by the Gulbenkian Foundation in 1979, was to establish a Young Adult Unit, to provide a channel of influence and practical assistance between young people and the broadcasting authorities. In response, the Foundation invited the chairman of the British Youth Council, a young Peter Mandelson, to undertake a feasibility study for the proposed Unit.

This is the report of the feasibility study. It recommends the establishment of a Young Adult Unit at the National Extension College, with regional experiments of complementary activities being established on Merseyside, in the North-East and possibly in London.

Peter Mandelson is European Commissioner for External Trade.
