Jon Snow on reporting from Iran, the future of the TV licence fee, and the Guardian USA.

plerudulier‘s insight:

C4’s Jon Snow was one of the few foreign reporters in Tehran for the recent election and the only UK broadcaster. What conditions was he working under, how did he handle the Iranian authorities and what keeps drawing him back to the country?

The Guardian’s PRISM story has given it a boost in the USA, which reportedly already provides a third of the traffic to its website. Has this increased the viability of its free digital news strategy? Prof Emily Bell of Columbia University is the former director of digital at the Guardian and now on the Scott Trust board and she joins Steve from New York while, in London, Douglas McCabe of Enders Analysis gives his opinion. Also, as NewsCorp splits into 21st Century Fox and a smaller NewsCorp, what is the future of Rupert Murdoch’s printed newspapers in the UK?

And how does the BBC respond to claims that the TV licence fee is anachronistic and increasingly avoided by people only watching catch up? Do the figures back that up and how would enforcement work if more people claim they don’t need a licence yet watch online or on mobiles? Steve puts this to John Tate, the BBC’s director of policy and strategy.
