As the regular reader (there is [only]or[at least] one, according to my stats counters) of this blog will know, I am interested in the slow progress of the Broadcasting Bill, 2006 through the Houses of the Oireachtas (Parliament). For that reason, I am greatly looking forward to the next lecture in the evening stream of the Dublin Legal Workshop. Next Tuesday, 13 February, David McMunn, Director of Government, Regulatory and Legal Affairs for TV3, will give a talk entitled
The Broadcasting Bill, 2006. The Tooth Fairy – Judge,
Jury and Executioner.
It will be held in Room 11 of the School of Law, House 39, Trinity College Dublin (a map of College with directions to the School of Law is available here), at 6pm. If you’re interested, please do come along. As DaithÃ says, David’s is a
… provocative title – especially given TV3â€™s long record of calling for reform of broadcasting legislation. … Davidâ€™s talk promises to be infomative, and a helpful aid towards understanding the complexity of the issues in the Bill. As youâ€™ll discover if you try and make sense of the econsultation documents, there are all sorts of issues thrown together. If he manages to uncover a guiding principle or philosophy – or even suggest one – he will have succeeded where many others have failed!
