Beyond the Red Button : Reaching new audiences through interactive TV
Tuesday 4 December 2007 : 2.00pm (Registration from 1.30pm)
at the IET, Savoy Place, London WC2

It is free but attendees need to pre register.

This is a networking opportunity and may well be worth your time.

This Seminar/Workshop is aimed at broadcasters, television writers and producers, SET professionals, commissioners, heads of AV media, educationalists, and all those interested in science communication.

The Seminar will bring together key individuals from the worlds of commercial television, tv drama, new av media and science and technology. It offers the opportunity to see and discuss the latest work in interactive TV, some of it not previously screened, to discuss the value and future of interactive television with leading practitioners and to take part in practical, interactive, activities.

PAWS = Public Awareness of Science

The PAWS Drama Fund offers scientific and engineering contacts, events and funding for writers and producers within the UK. It runs a major Awards day in London each autumn to recognise the best in science based drama and other TV and AV genres. In 2007, the Awards evening is on Tuesday 4 December at the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in central London, featuring a state of the art discussion on Technology and Society with a keynote address from John Simpson, BBC World Affairs Editor. This is preceded in the afternoon by a seminar on interactive TV.

EuroPAWS, the European arm of PAWS, works with organisations across Europe to offer a number of similar activities. These include an annual festival for the best Television bearing on science and technology in Europe, financial support and a science and engineering contacts service for writers and producers Europe-wide, as well as events featuring science and technology across all broadcasting and Audio-visual output. There are events this autumn in Berlin, Paris and Strasbourg.

PAWS website

We have an invitation to the seminar. The awards event seems open to all but again attendees need to pre register.
