Tony Ageh OBE on iPlayer’s creation, BAFTA and the future of Film and TV

We met up with media and broadcast innovator Tony Ageh (OBE) the other day at the BBC, to talk about what he’s been watching as a BAFTA panellist, how the evolution of new media is affecting our viewing patterns and consumption of film and his instrumental role in developing market leading on demand service, BBC iPlayer and he dispels the myths surrounding the service’s creation. We also discuss whether there’s still a place for the cinema experience.
