Eventbrite - A New Chapter in Regulation? 

A report of this event is available here.

As a result of Baroness Benjamin’s successful amendment to he Digital Economy Act – Ofcom are now empowered to impose regulations to create more children’s content on the commercial public service channels – ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5.

How they do that, and just how far this new regulation will go, will be decided later this year, based upon the outcomes of their ten-year Children’s Content Review.

This event brings together the production sector, broadcasters, industry and audience representatives and it gives YOU the chance to have your say on Ofcom’s Review and the regulatory plans.

With the recent announcement of the new pilot Contestable Content Fund – now dedicated to children’s content and promising a £20m a year boost to commissioning – there couldn’t be a better time to discuss how these mechanisms could work together to improve prospects for the children’s media industry in the UK and ultimately improve choice for the children’s audience.

A New Chapter in Regulation will be moderated by Stewart Purvis  former CEO and Editor-in-Chief of ITN and Ofcom Partner for Content and Standards.

Panelists:
Richard Bradley – MD, Lion Television
Anne Brogan – Joint MD Kindle Entertainment  and CMF Board member
Kate O’Connor – Executive Chair, Animation UK, UK Screen Alliance
Rosina Robson – Director of Nations and Children’s, Pact
Prof. Jeanette Steemers – Kings College London and the Voice of the Listener and Viewer
Nicholas Walters – CEO, Hopster

Representatives from Ofcom and the public service broadcasters will be in attendance to hear the views of the meeting,

Doors open at 5.30pm.

The event starts at 6pm and will end with a short drinks reception from 8 – 8.30 pm.
