Setting Up A Television Station In Coventry

Last updated : 19 January 2011 By Covsupport News Service
Coventry & Warwickshire could be one city which has its own television channel if new plans by the BBC go ahead.

David Rushton as the founder and director of the Institute of Local Television (ILT) with David Holdsworth, the BBC's Controller of English Regions has been this week discussing this at the Herbert Art Gallery in Coventry.

David Rushton created the ILT in 1989 and it became formally incorporated as an 'Institute' in 1998. The ILT is an independent, not-for-profit organisation working largely in the academic and public sectors on local TV engineering and development of public service TV through research, training, conferences, exhibitions, festivals and production.

Also discussing the subject was David Holdsworth, who is the BBC Controller of English Regions and responsible for the BBC's local output and newsgathering across the country. His remit includes twelve television operations, 45 websites and 40 radio stations.
