The channel will be optimised for the web but tweaked for connected broadcast as well. I am still looking for sponsors for the programme as it will be a quality product that covers all the exciting things happening in computing and ICT in the UK and…

L4LNews Playlist

Over the last year I have been working towards building a series of specialist media channels for L4L. In the last decade I have recorded many, many hours of interviews on video, tape and digital recorders.
