On TV is a space to celebrate and explore all things television. This year, the inaugural festival tunes into the characters, catchphrases and colour of children’s television. A range of academics and industry speakers are contributing to the academic strand, speaking on shows from Doctor Who, My Little Pony, Newsround, Horrible Histories and more and debating topics from transmedia and branding, to the changing nature of public service broadcasting. The festival will begin on Friday evening and continue all day on Saturday.

Keynote speakers:

·         Prof Maire Messenger Davies, author of Children, Media and Culture, Dear BBC and many studies of children and television

·         Anna Home, one of the original Jackanory production team, commissioner of Grange Hill and Teletubbies, Chair of the Children’s Media Foundation
