October at the BFI

Time for our regular look at what TV’s on at the South Bank in London in October. Not a lot at all this month, but a couple of things at least, including a day looking at future trends in TV production.

  • 2nd: 360° TV and multi-platform production
    A panel of commissioners and new media producers discuss the process of 360° commissioning, its impact on programme genres and what the future holds.
  • 2nd: Online-only TV and the democratisation of TV production
    Using clips of shows created specifically for online consumption, this will examine how companies such as Current TV, Bebo and YouTube are showcasing the work of the public.
  • 4th: Preview: Murderland + Q&A
    A showing of episode 1 of ITV1’s three-part Rashomon-esque Murderland, starring Robbie Coltrane. Followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with writer David Pirie, director Catherine Morshead, producer Kate Croft and members of the cast.

Random Acts of Ali Larter: Helping the poor in sub-Saharan Africa

Did you know that Kenneth Cole’s not-for-profit Awearness project has partnered up with Feed projects to create a Feed Health Backpack? Well now you do, thanks to our Ali, who’s been to an awareness/Awearness raising event in Santa Monica.

If you buy one of the backpacks, another identical pack for Community Health Workers is filled by Millennium Villages – an organisation that provides solutions to improve lives and lift people out of extreme poverty throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. It will contain medical supplies, a training manual, mobile phone, and other necessary tools in the field, and help identify CHWs as they complete household visits, establishing their community presence as healthcare providers.

There. Don’t say this feature is entirely pointless and only here because I like pictures of Ali Larter. It serves a valuable community purpose. Oh yes it does.

Have you seen Ali Larter acting randomly? If so, let us know and we’ll tell everyone about it in "Random Acts of Ali Larter"
