We have something a bit different on Televised Revolution this week. Usually we try and provide some commentary on the biggest TV-related news stories of the week, provide some TV highlights, and point out a few interesting issues related to the medium. This week we’re dropping that to take you into the belly of the beast.
The ABC is a multi-platform media giant in Australia. It has significant influence across TV, Radio, and Online. It also drives a lot of the innovation that we see in the Australian marketplace. Brisbane is the home to a brand new building for the ABC that brings into it staff working across all three platforms. It’s a purpose-built facility that was designed to ensure all three platforms are able to work together as part of the same harmonious entity.
On this weeks Televised Revolution, the manager of the project to build the new ABC South Bank (Brisbane) studios, Mike McGowan, takes us on a tour of the new building. He highlights some of the more interesting aspects of the building while also taking us through the key areas that may be of interest to Televised Revolution listeners.
