ITV moving in the right direction #enviromental #animatedexeter2012

I very much support the decdision by ITV Regional to load up a clip from Evolumental to YouTube.

But the problem I think is that they only make available content that has been broadcast. So this is not the whole ten minutes. Also it turned out that the timing of a live broadcast diod not coincide with the best bits in the background in my honest opinion.

The BBC have similar policies I think. Could they relax this a bit so they stay to get the whole thing and then load it to YouTube or somewhere? A couple of years ago there was an ITV crew in the Anchor Gardens during Sidmouth Folk Week for most of an afternoon. Working hard on music video but I don't think more than a minute or two got on the TV. So what to do with all this stuff?

Social media were discouraged from posting anything from the Wednesday tests that would possibly compete with TV exclusivity. I'm not sure YouTube audiences are yet a problem for propertelly. And besides there could be more of a mix that actually helped the broadcast. There are some decent cameras in Exeter. Can we have a bit of a discussion on what else might be possible?
