Erik Huggers

BBC Director of Future Media & Technology

Putting BBC Online at the heart of our digital future

Speech given at Guardian Changing Media Summit

BBC Director of Future Media & Technology Erik Huggers today (Thursday 18 March 2010) presented his vision to put a focused BBC Online at the heart of the BBC's digital future, to the Guardian Changing Media Summit.

With broadband penetration expected to grow in coming years, Huggers explained how changing audience demands are establishing the internet as the third platform: making the internet as important as TV and Radio in delivering the BBC's public service mission.

Huggers outlined how BBC Online will be transformed from a collection of websites supporting broadcast output to a coherent single service that will deliver all the BBC's public services to audiences across a wide range of internet-connected digital platforms and devices – including mobiles and internet-connected TVs.

An outline of the presentation is available on the BBC Internet Blog.
