How to make the most of your brilliant TV idea

Published 15.05.08 at 19:30

Do you have a great idea that you think would work great on TV? Whatever your idea is about you have to speak to a channel or independent production company and explain it in detail. In doing so you risk the idea being exploited by the people you are speaking to but they are also able to give you the chance of a lifetime. It's a Catch-22 situation.

Speakers were Robert Lands, head of IP Media, Finers Stephens Innocent LLP and Sarah Edwards, head of Entertainment Development, Talkback Thames.

This podcast is taken from an event that took place at 01zero-one in May 2008.

The podcast is downloadable in two parts.
