Issues and Debates


Leaders’ Debate

In a unique opportunity, join the creative leaders of Britain’s main broadcasters to discuss their visions of the future. As the pace of change in the viewing market continues to accelerate, how are the different organisations responding? Beyond the day-to-day business of commissioning and distributing eye-catching television programmes, what are the key strategic priorities they are trying to pursue? Chaired by Evan Davis, this session will ask how the broadcasters can remain relevant to an audience increasingly spoilt for choice and how they are facing up to the existential threat posed by new technologies and content-providers.
