Writing on his blog,he says that there is a plan to make £500,000 available to commission up to four new pilots of interactive content for CBeebies and CBBC.
The initiative is called @north
We have allocated the money. We have published the guidelines. We have given everyone a blank sheet of paper. And now it's up to the creative teams from Newcastle to Crewe to blow us away with some fantastic ideas. The BBC can be the platform that shares the brilliant work already being done across the North with audiences throughout the UK.
