Episode 28 – BBC3 move postponed, election coverage and Adblock Plus

Broadcast consultant Paul Robinson and Guardian Edinburgh International TV Festival Director Lisa Campbell join Olly Mann to discuss this and the week’s other top media stories.


The BBC Trust delays their decision to axe BBC Three from TV until the autumn, knocking back plans to move the youth channel online only. With its commissioning strategy now in chaos, what does this mean for viewers and producers?

The makers of the Adblock Plus software win a court case against two German news organisations – what does it mean for ad-funded journalism in an already cash-poor industry?

Also on the programme, we discuss bad weeks for Katie Hopkins and Piers Morgan, good times at Sky and Netflix and the panel highlight the key media commitments from the main political parties’ manifestos.

A PPM Production, produced by Matt Hill.
