Upcoming TV, eh? Blogtalkradio shows: digital issues, Flashpoint, UFOs

The Sunday, June 29 the TV, eh? Blogtalkradio show will focus on two issues with huge implications, Bill C-61 and net neutrality. Bill C-61 is the act to amend the copyright law that has implications for digital downloads of music, movies, television, etc. From Maclean’s:

You would be allowed to record a TV or radio show, but no more than one copy. And if broadcasters started putting up locks to block your PVR, you could face fines for hacking it.

The net neutrality debate has opened up discussion on how much control service providers should exert over Internet access, with Bell’s throttling practises to limit access speeds a hot button topic right now.

Listen live Sunday at 11 am Pacific/2 pm Eastern and join the discussion by calling 646-200-4063 (or sign in and look for the Click to Talk button on the show site). Or catch the podcast afterwards.

Upcoming TV, eh? Blogtalkradio show: Directors David Winning and Martin Wood

dw2003 1This Sunday is another TV, eh? show on Blogtalkradio, and it’s a Banff World Television Festival director extravaganza. First up is director David Winning, who has directed numerous television and film projects on both sides of the border. Call in at 646-200-4063, 11 am Pacific/2 pm Eastern, to talk about his adventures on shows such as Blood Ties, Andromeda, Earth: Final Conflict, Dinotopia, Dinosapien, Are You Afraid of the Dark, Sweet Valley High, and many more.

Following that live discussion, I’ll play an excerpt of the interview I did with executive producer and director Martin Wood of Sanctuary, Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis. It includes material that didn’t make it into my article , such as more on Sanctuary’s innovative filming process and a solid answer to the elusive question I’ve been asked more than once: Why is Vancouver such a hotbed of science fiction filming?

Tune in to TV, eh? on Blogtalkradio Sunday, June 22 at 11 am Pacific/2 pm Eastern or listen to the podcast later.
