#46 - Channel 4 fights to keep Black Mirror - The Media Podcast with Olly Mann

With the show’s producers signed up to Netflix, can Channel 4 keep hold of the first-look rights - and what does it mean for the relationship between broadcasters and indies? Olly Mann is joined by Leon Wilson (MD, Talkback) and Scott Bryan (Buzzfeed) to discuss this and the other top media stories.

Also on the programme: as John Whittingdale thinks the BBC’s new board should be appointed by the Government, we find out why a lot of people think that’s a bad idea. Plus - more on the Guardian’s cost cutting woes, Capital Radio goes ad free (sort of) and we think you’ll like this week’s Media Quiz... not a lot, but you’ll like it.
