The general election has dominated the national news agenda for much of the year.This month, the RTS hosts a debate in which two of television's most experienced anchor men give an insider's view of what really happened in the political arena.
Jeremy Paxman and Alastair Stewart are in conversation with Steve Hewlett at a not-to-be missed Legends' Lunch on 19 May. For more details, please go to our website.
I am delighted to say that registration is now open for the biennial RTS Cambridge Convention, chaired by BBC Director-General Tony Hall.
The dates of this year's conference are 16-18 September. I am very proud to say that we have assembled a world-class line-up of speakers.
They include: Michael Lombardo, President of Programming at HBO; Sharon White, CEO of Ofcom; David Abraham, CEO at Channel 4; Viacom President and CEO Philippe Dauman; Josh Sapan, President and CEO of AMC Networks; and David Zaslav, President and CEO of Discovery Communications.
Next month sees the 20th RTS ­Student Awards. I am thrilled that comedian Romesh Ranganathan will host the event at BFI Southbank in London on 5 June.
In an exciting move, the work of this year's nominees and highlights of the ceremony will be shown on Sky TV.
I'd like to thank everyone who made the recent, sold-out RTS Futures evening, "I made it in... digital", such a success. A full report starts on page 23.
Are you a fan of Episodes, Googlebox or W1A? Well, who isn't? This month's cover story by Stefan Stern takes a perceptive look at how television
can't stop making TV about TV. It's a must-read.
So, too, is Richard Sambrook's TV Diary, which provides some incisive and timely analysis of the election coverage.
