Are UK broadcasters in good shape for the future?
My colleague Adrian Scott and I co-chaired a seminar session at the recent BVE conference in London.
Those awfully nice BVE chaps shot video footage of the session and it’s available here: http://bve2012.streamuk.com/?wid=415e62b5
It’s an interesting discussion that challenges the position of broadcasters working well with IT companies and deploying VOD and OTT technologies.
It true debating society style, Adrian and I had to take up opposite sides of the argument. I drew the short straw and had to depend the proposition that UK broadcasters ARE in good shape for the future. Not surprisingly, I did not carry the audience with me at the end, and they voted overwhelmingly that UK broadcasters are NOT in good shape for the future.
Nonetheless, it was an interesting debate and Gavin Tweedy’s input was invaluable.
Note to self, really need a haircut!
