John will be signing copies of his new book, A Day Like Today, during the lunchtime interval.

In the final session of the day, Professor Matt Hills of Huddersfield University will be presenting new research on ‘default TV’, looking at how people decide what to watch in the era of multi-platform, multi-device and multi-streaming television. This will be followed by a panel discussion chaired by Mathew Horsman on the implications for the public service broadcasters including prominence and discoverability.
