BBC Online Industry Briefing: Children's Product Update
Hello, I'm Phil Buckley, the Product Manager for CBBC and CBeebies interactive.
My editorial colleagues Japhet Asher, Rachel Bardill, and I gave a talk on Thursday 17 November to a group of suppliers, both to introduce those new to children's content to what we do, and also to meet talented new agencies who might be interested in our upcoming work.
As always, the BBC is not responsible for any risque/ off message jokes:
Phil Buckley is Product Manager, CBBC and CBeebies
Children expect games from the BBC, as Lisa Blythman-Wood, of VML London, noted:
#bbconline games page as important as the homepage for CBBC
Johan Jardevall of Valtech welcomed moves towards HTML5:
Happy to see html5 being investigated for use in future CBBC games - good fun watching the games demos #BBCOnline
#bbconline briefing, very much focusing across 4 screens, experimenting w/html5 games despite taking what can be produced back 10yrs
The product update had plenty of chances to include games and fun. Laura Ellis, BBC Head of New Media in Birmingham, drew life lessons:
very fine demo of BBC Childrens' game 'Moo Spew' by @mrrobinmorley. Moral: Never kidnap a cow and take it on a boat #bbconline
Edd Uzzell, Sony, appreciated the BBC Newsround word search, which asked youngsters to find "Seb Blatter" and "racism" in a grid.
A highlight from #BBCOnline conference was the great word search on #CBBC site. BBC news should add this to imgur.com/3xWPL
