Just discovered a few interesting and insightful interview videos by the official 2011 Banff World Media Festival team. Check them out.
For the record, a very insightful BBC Imagine Ai Weiwei 艾未未 documentary “Ai Weiwei Without Fear or Favor”. Highly recommended.
“The amazing story of Dr. Temple Grandin’s ability to read the animal mind, which has made her the most famous autistic woman on the planet.” – BBC
The Woman Who Thinks Like a Cow (BBC Horizon) on YouTube. Highly recommended.
Digital Revolution (working title) is “open and collaborative documentary on the way the web is changing our lives” from BBC2.
Great news. BBC announces plan to share archives.
The BBC has launched a massive program to share its film, audio and document archives with other arts institutions in Britain, marking a new direction for the public broadcaster.
Alan Yentob, the BBC’s creative director, announced Saturday the new initiative will provide archival access, historic materials and even technical assistance in collaboration with the Tate art gallery, the British Film Institute and the British Library.
“As an organization we have to make the most of the downturn by responding to it … the BBC has an obligation to share what we have got,” he told the Guardian newspaper. Yentob said the corporation was also in talks with the Royal Opera House and the National Theatre.
“I see the BBC as a broker in these times,” responded Yentob. “It is the next stage for us. We must make sure culture remains confident in this country.”
Heritage Minister James Moore likes it. Will the gov follow up and borrow a page from BBC?
