Roger Mosey
Director of London 2012, BBC

Session Details:
Keynote: The London 2012 Debriefing: Analysing the Summer Olympic Games
Date: 8 September 2012
Time: 09:30 - 11:00

Q. What Olympic event do you wish you could compete in?

A. White-water canoeing. Looks like fun.

Q. What was your very first job in the broadcast industry?

A. Answering the phones at Pennine Radio, Bradford.

Q. What's the biggest change you've seen in broadcasting since you started?

A. Digital. Moving from making programmes using tape and razor blades to an online world.

Q. When did you attend your first IBC and what was it like?

A. 2009. Brief! (A flying visit in every sense.)

Q. What has been your favorite pre-Olympics event so far?

A. I really enjoyed the Handball test event, which was great for spectators: a fast, high-scoring sport.

Q. How has the Internet changed Olympics presentation?

A. Massively more choice. You can devise your own Olympic coverage, instead of us choosing it for you.

Q. What is the most challenging part of being Head Of Olympics at the BBC?

A. Finding different answers to the question “what worries you most?”

Q. What’s the greatest lesson you’ve learned in taking on the Olympics broadcast?

A. The BBC can do amazing things when it works together across all platforms and genres.

Q. What will you do with your life when London 2012 is all done with?

A. Acquire a friendly dog, which I’ll call Locog.

Q. Who's the one person without whom you wouldn’t be where you are today?

A. That person knows.
