Last week I had the pleasure of a trip to Manchester, where I’ve not been since the tail end of the 20th century. I was invited by the BBC to look round their R&D North Lab, which is one of the three locations where the Corporation works on a range of research, from digital production to ways of enhancing the experience of the end users.
There’s a team of technologists (or hot geeks, as I prefer to think of them); mostly young men and a few women, ranging from those on placement as part of a course to others who have been with the BBC for many years.
A full report of my trip is over on RegHardware.
Additional information about the “dalek demo” has just been posted on the BBC R&D Blog
