Senator Ludlam asked:
Is there any way for us to know whether the funding or resourcing of the Radio National specialist units is going up or down over time? What specialist program units remain in the ABC?
Since 2005/06, the funding for Radio National specialist programming has increased annually.
In ABC Radio National, programming is currently produced in the following specialist categories: Arts, History, Law, Music, Religion, Rural, Science, Politics and Public/Social Policy.
