Giant BBC TV screen in Manchester

The Public Space Broadcasting project is a project involving the BBC, technology providers, and local councils to install continually broadcasting, 25m LED screens with sound systems in prominent locations in city centres. The premise on which the screens are operated is as a platform for all, to provide local information, and to allow film-makers and other visual artists a platform on which to display their work. The screens are run by the BBC in accordance with its editorial guidelines and are known as 'Big Screen (city name) e.g Big Screen Manchester. There are currently seven UK cities and one town which have one with a ninth opening shortly in Swindon. The 'screens' show BBC programming as well as screenings of locally made films, event information and sports coverage. Events that have been broadcast include the Live8 concert in 2005. Interactivity has become a key feature of the package, using technology to enable interaction with audiences.
