The birth of any new technology means, sometimes inevitably, the death of its precursor. Or does it? Last year, Think TV commissioned a six-part documentary series meant to explore the future of television as a viable media outlet now other platforms – namely, the internet – seem to be running the show. Interviewees included a broad range of clued-up “business leaders” and “industry luminaries”, all of whom added to the collective assertion that television, at least for now, is safe.
Think TV are back with a second series, The New TV Landscape, which again looks to industry leaders for insight into a dramatically changing industry. Want to hear effortlessly cool Wieden + Kennedy co-founder Dan Wieden talk about “interactive campfires”? Sure you do.
