#31 - Broadcast Backs the Beeb, Lineker’s BT Transfer and Creative Week 2015
Olly Mann is joined by Moz Dee (Contented Media) & Jake Kanter (Broadcast) to discuss the biggest stories of the week, including key insights from Creative Week 2015.
Broadcast has launched a campaign offering ‘qualified support’ for the corporation during its Royal Charter renewal negotiations - Jake Kanter explains why.
In a week where BBC director of television Danny Cohen spelled out the dangers in cutting the licence fee, the panel discuss the threats to programming on BBC4, as well as the latest commissioning news for BBC Three, as it prepares for a potential move online.
Plus, Olly, Jake and Moz consider Gary Lineker’s potential part-time gig at BT Sport - does it water down the BBC’s brand? - a public offering for Buzzfeed and the ominous warnings of pre-rolls at Netflix.
