Session 1: The Future of Public Media 

Tuesday 6 September, 3.05 – 3.40, Track 1

Moderator: Harry Lock (PMA)

Panellists: David Hua (Head of Audio and Digital Services, SBS), Richard Sutherland (Head of News, RNZ), and Sopit Wangvivatana (Thai PBS)

As the BBC celebrates its 100th anniversary, so too does the idea of public service media. But as media organisations face ever more competition from big tech, growing threats to media freedom, and begin to reel from the impact of the pandemic, what does the future hold for public media? How are they innovating to tackle these issues? And will they be with us in another 100 years?

Session 2: Emergency Broadcasting: Radio as the Ultimate Lifeline

Wednesday 7 September, 1.15-2.30

Moderator: Harry Lock (PMA)

Panellists: Seiichi Kuriki (Producer, NHK Tokyo), Patrick Hession (Emergency Broadcast Lead, ABC)

Fires, floods and tsunamis – in any natural disaster or civil emergency radio is the most reliable medium to help people in danger or distress and save lives. In this session we will hear from Australia and Japan how the ABC and NHK have innovated their readiness and organisation to function at the very best when urgent and reliable information is needed the most.
