Local TV pioneer to speak at ATRiuM

News is the lifeblood of democracy, so there’s a lot at stake in the bidding to become the next provider of it for TV viewers in Wales. 

Glamorgan students can hear from one of the more intriguing bidders – Gordon Main – in a guest lecture on Tuesday 2 March  in the cinema (2pm). 

Gordon’s pioneering work with an online TV service for Pembrokeshire drove him to put forward an idea for a network of 22 local news operations for Wales. 

His lecture could not be more timely, as a contribution to the debate about the future of news. 

 A full list of  forthcoming TV/Media/Journalism lectures at the Atrium:  

·         March 2: Gordon Main, Pembrokeshire TV
