Subject: Invitation to speak at the Westminster Media Forum Keynote Seminar: Video on Demand, morning, 31 st January 2008

Dear Mr Huggers

Westminster Media Forum Keynote Seminar: Video on Demand TI"ming: Morning, sr' January 2008

Venue: Westminster, SWI

I understand that you have already spoken with Andrew Scad ding about speaking at the Westminster Media Forum Keynote Seminar: Video on Demand, being held on 3 1st January 2008. We would be delighted if you could join us for the event; please find further information below.

As first data begins to emerge on take-up ofVOD services being offered by major UK broadcasters, and with continuing discussion on the way that such services should be defined in terms of the Audiovisual Media Services Directive, this seminar looks at the future prospects for the VOD market, and at developments in the regulatory regime.

This timely seminar will bring together key industry figures to examine the issues around the current and fUture market for VOD, business models and the implications ofVOD for linear broadcasters and advertisers.

We would be pleased to have you contribute to our first panel entitled Audiences, Programming and Business Models, the themes of which are:

• Where new VOD audiences are emerging;

• The programmes they are accessing and how they are accessing them,'

• The future prospects for VOD business models and income sources.

What is said is up to speakers themselves but your perspective on these issues would, no doubt, be of great interest to the audience.

Panelists are usually asked to make opening remarks of no more than 4 minutes. It may not sound like too long, but the expectation is for a concise set of opening points to update, and stimulate engagement with, the generally informed group in the room. We try to give as much time as possible to the floor to interact with the panel through comments and questions, moderated by the chair. Often it is this open discussion that brings out the most important insights on the issues being examined.

The initial agenda. including timings and panel themes. is pasted in below my signature for reference.

We are delighted that Jeremy Olivier, Head of Multimedia. Of com has agreed to deliver a keynote address.

Confirmed speakers so far include: Professor Patrick Barwise, Professor of Management and Marketing, Said Business School; Dr Damian Tambini, Lecturer, London School of Economics, Elizabeth Pilkin, Chair.

A TVOD; Laurence Harrison. Director of Content, Intellect UK; Steve Hewlett, Freelance Media Consultant; and Sarah Rose, Head ofVOD and Channel Development, 40D, John McVay, Chief Executive, PACT.

Chris Mole MP has kindly agreed to chair part of this seminar.

We expect participants on the platform and in the audience to be a senior and informed group numbering about 100, including Members of both Houses of Parliament, officials from Of com and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, and representatives of industry, interest groups, academia and the national

media. The events regularly receive prominent coverage in the national and trade press.

An important output from the day will be a briefing document produced immediately after the event. This includes all speeches, comments and questions, and PowerPoint slides, as well as articles submitted by delegates, the delegate list and speaker biographies. Based principally on transcripts, it is made available subject to strict restrictions on public use, similar to those for Select Committee Uncorrected Evidence, and is intended to provide timely information for the Parliamentarians, policy makers, organisations and individuals unable to attend on the day. It is also distributed to all delegates.

The document is compiled using unedited transcripts of the proceedings although we are happy to substitute prepared speakers' text or notes, or transcripts edited by speakers providing they can be sent within two days following the seminar.

As you know, the Westminster Media Forum is an impartial and cross-party organisation that has enjoyed considerable support from within Parliament and government. It organises senior level seminars on public policy in telecoms. The Forum has no policy agenda of its own. All events adhere to the Forum's core proposition of impartiality, not to the agenda of any sponsor. The Forum is unable to offer fees to speakers.

We cover our costs through the sale of modestly priced tickets to events and appropriate

sponsorship. Complimentary tickets are made available to parliamentarians, officials, the press and we discount as needed so no one is excluded on economic grounds. All events adhere to the WMF core proposition of impartiality, not to the agenda of any sponsor.

Please do contact me if you would like more information, or to discuss the matter further, via email or on

With kind regards,

Kate Munro

Hi Cassandra,

r f you could send me over the power-point tomorrow that would be preferable. This way we can check that there are no cornpatabiliry issues with the laptop that all slides will be stored on.

Let me know if this is going to be problematic for you.

Regarding your attendance, you are very welcome to attend with Erik for the session that he will be contributing too. I'm afraid the seminar is already fully booked and we are now turning away delegates, so I am not able to invite you for the whole morning.

I'm sorry about this but, as I say, you are welcome to attend for the panel session up to I0.40am.

Kind regards,

Hi Kate,

Just to say we are just putting final touches to Erik's 5 minute speech for Thursday. At present there may be just one powerpoint slide required but just making final checks. If we do go ahead with slide is tomorrow ok to get it over to you or can we bring on memory stick?

One final question would it be ok for me to attend with Erik? It will just be for his session, I just need to be across the questions etc from a comms perspective.

Andrew Scadding mentioned that there is usually a spare pass for speaker so this shouldn't be a problem.

Kind regards
