In our special guest interview, Emily speaks to media and broadcast innovator Tony Ageh (OBE) 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, we discuss Tony’s 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 in the age of on demand home viewing, there’s still a place for the cinema experience.
We’ll be checking in again with Sarah to see where she’s up to with her ambitious 500 Film Challenge – she’s watching 500 films in a year!
