BBC’s New Head Urges Broadcaster To Embrace Net


(reg. req.): Incoming BBC chairman Michael Grade hasy warned “arrogant” broadcasters they could face the same fate as the piracy-ravaged music industry if they fail to embrace new methods of distribution such as the internet.

“If you think how much TV has been produced in the last 20 or 30 years – I’d pay to watch Bilko again. There’s a whole mass of content there dormant and waiting for broadband,” he said.
