BBC announce plans for local video


by David Allen

An approval process for something that is going to upset many local newspapers has been set up by the BBC Trust.

This is for an on demand local news video service which will be available on both the internet and on mobiles.

The news will come from all of the sixty or so regions but will need a cash injection of around £68 million to keep it going by 2012.

The service is likely carrying around ten fresh stories which will fill a gap of around twenty minutes; there will also be a minute, to a minute and half, of bulletins which cover news, sport and weather.

However the local press are not happy with these plans as they see this as being their territory; most local newspapers have invested in similar websites which cover their local area.
