A proposal for local video journalism.
published on UK Free TV

Key people:Nigel Dacre, the former editor of ITV News, emphasis on local video journalism, economical models key supplier to S4C

"I am an optimist - to me it is absolutely inevitable there will be a growth in local video journalism, especially in lively conurbations, and at the very least that will be looking for outlets,"
