bigbritishcastle_300.jpgEpisode 3 of R&DTV is now available to view and download via the Backstage blog:

"Building on the TEDxManchester conference footage, we have a small interview with Stephen Fry from the bundle of videos released under creative commons as part of the BBC's Digital Revolution project. A interview with Michael Sparks of BBC R&D on the open source project Kamaelia and finally a short look back at BBC Ceefax as most of us in the UK experience Analogue TV switch off.

As always there are several edits and all the assets (eg full length interviews) available for your remixing use and pleasure.


There's a review of the Freeview HD box from Humax on Crave - CNET UK. We covered the launch of Freeview HD at the end of last year on the blog as well as the follow up coverage.


We'd also like to welcome the most recent addition to the family of BBC blogs so say 'Hello' to the Lauren Laverne 6 Music blog which promises much for music fans out there. In the words of Lauren:

"This blog is going to be flippin ace. We'll be putting videos, links to MPFrees, Indie Travel Guides, your Workers Playtime artwork and our musings up here as we go along. But today, as an extra special treat, we offer up to you, our dearest and most beloved of all the people in the world, the premier of The Hot Rats live session video that was recorded when they visited us on Tuesday. I think you'll agree it's momentous.

So bookmark this bad boy of a blog and keep checking in for regular updates..."



You can watch Victoria Derbyshire on the 5 live blog talking about her use of social media as part of her programme. There's also a Q&A with Up All Night presenter Rhod Sharp as part of social media week on the 5 live blog.


There's a video of Erik Huggers, boss of Future Media and Technology speaking at the Nations and Regions Media Conference last month where he announced that there'd be over 2,000 hours of coverage of the Vancouver Winter Olympics on red button services. There's also a report on the InteractiveTV Today website.


And finally, as we like to say on the Internet blog, you've got until Monday to listen to the brilliant Ed Reardon's Week on iPlayer which finds freelance writer Ed immersing himself in the joys of the BBC's messageboards. As Ed says:

"I find that now that 12 year-olds have taken control of all other media outlets, the messageboard is one of the few remaining democratic forms of communication available to the common man."

Paul Murphy is the Editor of the Internet blog. Today's picture is of the BBC White City building taken from the other side of the road.
