*TALK OVERVIEW: Over the course of two ‘Guest Lectures’ Lord Puttnam will
explore the profound changes occurring in what is now a very broadly based
‘Content Industry’. Several factors lie at the heart of these changes,
among them globalization and corporate consolidation in what has become a
much fought over multi-billion-dollar marketplace. In this first lecture
David Puttnam will address the issues of New Markets and New Technologies.
