Our friend in the North

STV Productions’ programme roster has benefited from a serious commitment to the three Rs, says Alan Clements

I am delighted to be the Executive Producer of the RTS London Conference on 9 September, which my boss, Rob Woodward, is chairing. The stellar line-up of guests is testament to the hard work, and brilliant contacts, of the organising committee and I hope you all come to enjoy their expertise and experience in person.

There are great sessions with international luminaries such as Chase Carey from Fox and JB Perrette from Discovery, and debates on the ownership of IP and the future of the BBC.

Emma Scott’s TV diary

Emma Scott drives the Mini Cooper of TV land out to meet its continental peers as industry consolidation threatens to overshadow her summer holiday

I'm 10 days away from my summer holiday, timed for the traditional silly season. Now whatever happened to that? BSkyB has just announced that it is buying its German and Italian sister companies; Liberty Global has bought a stake in ITV; Channel 5 is now owned by Viacom; and a flurry of other deals is mooted, none bigger than 21st Century Fox's tilt at Time-Warner. Animal spirits are running high in TV land. Bien sûr, Freesat is also reaching out across the continent.

IBC will have to do more for less money

01 Sep 2014
Behind the hype about Ultra-HDTV and the Cloud, the real theme of IBC will be pressure on costs, predicts Adrian Pennington

As the US and European economies begin to stabilise, technology budgets are returning to their pre-crash levels – but media companies’ investment habits have shifted significantly during the downturn.

One casualty has been broadcasters’ regular kit-replacement cycle.

“We see major technology decisions increasingly taken on the basis of return on investment and on a project-by-­project basis,”  says Blackmagic Design’s Channel Sales Director Tim Siddons.
