The NI Select Committee of MPs met in Belfast yesterday to hear evidence for its Inquiry into TV broadcasting in Northern Ireland. The submissions from journalists and producers representatives' the NUJ and Pact both highlighted the low moral in the local industry due to a combination of redundancies and lack of network commissions.

hi - attended the very informative and engaging channel 4 digital commissioners "gig" at the corinthian today. one of the audience asked how - in relation to 4ip - the three main scottish investment partners of this project can work together, as they appear to work towards widely differing artistic / commercial / innovation objectives. i didn't get (take!) the chance to say - its pretty simple!
scottish enterprise, scottish screen and channel 4 certainly share a common goal - to… Continue
