Episode notes

It’s Mipcom Cannes and, no, we’re not live from the beach... but we’ll still run you down all the TV gossip and things you need to know, as Matt Deegan is joined by broadcaster and writer Iain Dale, and Insights Editor at Broadcast Now, Rebecca Cooney.

Also on the programme: misinformation and the rush to publish. How have journalists fared in their reporting of the Middle East crisis?

Plus, the BBC cuts another continuing drama - is there anywhere left for writers to hone their craft? And we discover the big story that everyone is talking about in Australian radio.

All that, plus in the media quiz... we discover the true price of your IP.

A Rethink Audio production, produced by Ollie Peart with support from Matt Hill
