The Church of Scientology & BBC Panorama

The web allows any organisation to be a broadcaster. This case study looks at the BBC’s Panorama program that covered the Church of Scientology – including the BBC Reporter’s “meltdown moment” which was later broadcast on YouTube. This session will cover how and why The Church of Scientology made their own documentary about the BBC and used their website to host the program. Virginia Stewart was in London, England, at this time and had first hand experience of dealing with the BBC Panorama journalists.

I am sure Virginia will be fascinating.
I’m on first, on Wednesday – a day of workshops. See you there?

PS haven’t you always wanted to put PR and New Media in the same heading as Scientology? Go on, admit it. 😛
