BVE in the video on-demand era
N/A Within the last ten years, on-demand culture has changed the way that the world accesses media. From Prime Ministers Questions on Wednesday afternoons to Champions League highlights on a Tuesday evening, there is no longer any excuse to miss anything that we would otherwise tune into live.

N/A The summit of Live music has always been dominated by large bands, filling arenas consisting of high production values, funded by record labels and advertisers looking to attain a huge audience.

Filming for the army on Salisbury Plain
N/A Its no secret. Soldiers are trained to feel invincible, They develop a whole persona around focussed toughness and the ability to take care of themselves.
