Later this week I am attending an event at BT Tower in London that poses the provocative question “Is broadcasting dead or merely taking a break?” With shares in the leading commercial broadcaster in Britain falling steadily, now trading at under 40 pence, down from over a pound a year ago, the graph doesn’t look good. On the other hand, the BBC iPlayer, with a million users and half a million requests a day, is clearly still not replacing broadcasting as we know it — at least not yet. Even YouTube, with its billion views a day, seems unable to generate significant revenues from advertising. Most of us are not necessarily watching less television, but we may be seeing it differently in the future.
