July/August 2014

Leeds was the location for the Grand Depart, the opening stage of this year’s Tour de France. And the city played host to another important summer event – the 10th Yorkshire Programme Awards, held for the first time at the splendid and very contemporary Royal Armouries museum. It was a wonderful occasion and I was delighted to have been invited. Michael Steer and Matthew Burton from Educating Yorkshire presented an event that celebrated Yorkshire’s finest. Further north still, the inaugural RTS Scotland Awards was a fantastic event, which I was also privileged to attend. Congratulations to all the winners at both awards ceremonies.

During the past month I was thrilled to be present at the RTS Centres Council, generously hosted by RTÉ in Dublin. The day’s centrepiece was an inspiring and amusing talk given by RTÉ’s Chairman, Tom Savage. Back in London, the RTS All Party Parliamentary Group hosted a stimulating debate, “Future of funding for the BBC”. A top-class panel dissected the key issues – and more besides. Even England’s dismal draw against Costa Rica the same evening failed to dampen proceedings.

Looking forward to September, I would like to your draw attention to our London conference, “Power, Politics and the Media”. We have put together a stellar line-up of UK and international speakers. One of the keynotes will be given by Chase Carey, President and Chief Operating Officer of 21st Century Fox, the subject of this month’s cover story. Please book your places now.
