This Thursday I am pleased to be introducing the John Logie Baird Lecture, co-hosted by the BBC and The Institution of Engineering and Technology. I will be moderating a discussion among industry experts on the subject: Is the set-top box dead? Among the guest speakers will be Alix Pryde, the director of distribution at the BBC and Ian Mecklenburgh, the director of consumer platforms at Virgin Media. The evening at the BBC Media Centre in West London is free to attend but pre-registration is advised. See the informitv events section for more information.
