The challenges of a shifting TV landscape will be discussed by television executives at this year's RTS Cambridge Convention, chaired by BBC Director-General Tony Hall.
The Royal Television Society has announced the appointment of eight Vice Presidents, including Baroness Doreen Lawrence and Lord (Tony) Hall, Director General of the BBC.
The other appointments are David Abraham (CEO, C4); Lord (Melvyn) Bragg; Adam Crozier (CEO, ITV); Armando Iannucci; Ian Jones (CEO, S4C); and Gavin Patterson (CEO, BT).
It was time to take stock. After three days of intense and stimulating debate, Lorraine Heggessey corralled some of broadcasting’s big beasts onstage to chew the fat at the final session of Cambridge 2015. Was television heading for Happy Valley or was the House of Cards about to collapse?
The preliminary programme for this year's RTS Cambridge Convention has been announced.
The convention, held on a biennial basis, brings together leading figures from the television and its related industry.
This year's event looks forward to television in 2020, focusing on the challenge for content, creativity and business models.
The programme features sessions covering foreign ownership of UK production, the rise of the smart phone in television viewing, and the influence of talent in programme-making.
