The Future of Television Talk by Alex Connock
What kind of TV are you going to be working in for the next 40 years ? It's going to be global, interactive and online - and very different from the one we all grew up with. Visiting Professor Alex Connock, who co-founded the large factual TV production company Ten Alps, and has now founded Salford-based digital content company Pretend, tries to find some answers. Social media content, big-hitting interactive TV formats, more than ever from the North, and a TV business geared to sell programmes around the world will all feature, with loads of examples, and questions for the audience. Alex is also Chairman of the Royal Television Society in the North West, and a visiting fellow in journalism at OxfordUniversity.
