The future of children's television
21st July 2014
On the 3rd anniversary of BBC North's move to Salford, I hosted a Children's Media Question Time event for BAFTA at MediaCityUK. On the agenda was the impact of the Salford move, BAME (black and minority ethnic) representation in children's media, tax breaks and other issues affecting the industry.
The panellists were Phil Chalk (Managing Director, Factory TransMedia); Jermain Julien (Director, Wolfblood and The Dumping Ground); Rebecca Hodgson (Head of Drama, Lime Pictures); Cat Lewis (Managing Director, Nine Lives Media/Vice Chair of PACT) and Joe Godwin (Director, Children’s BBC - not pictured.)
