1st Meeting of the 188th Session (2008-2009)

New Media Opportunities

Louise Dalziel

In the Augustine United Church
41 George IV Bridge
Edinburgh, EH1 1EL
On Monday 13th October 2008, at 7pm

The digital revolution and the birth of Web 2.0 have opened the door to a generation of bloggers, podcasters, vodcasters and self selecting wannabes. These technological advances have also set in motion the convergence of the computer and the mobile phone as the vehicles to deliver multimedia content in all its forms. With that the floodgates have opened on new ways to communicate with audiences globally. After 20 years as a public service broadcaster, Louise Dalziel shares her experiences of life outside the BBC where anyone and everyone can be a self-styled broadcaster.

Louise, who has a background in zoology, has been producing a wide range of broadcast output for various networks in the BBC for 21 years, having joined BBC Scotland on the Martin Goldman Fellowship. Early in her career, Louise worked on Tomorrow's World, and has initiated and produced a wide range of programmes, from a long-running, light-hearted quiz called The Litmus Test to award winning drama and pre-recorded radio feature and documentary programmes. Louise grew and developed a highly successful science unit within the Radio Features Department at BBC Scotland, with producers working in both Edinburgh and Glasgow. A winner of multiple awards for her work, Louise left the BBC in April 2007 to establish her own media company, Matchless Content. She now makes highly professional pod and vodcasts for clients and delivers a range of media courses as well as continuing to broadcast on the BBC.
