Council House enters 20th century

This could be interesting, but probably for all the wrong reasons:

Live broadcasts of [Bristol] city council meetings will start tomorrow [Tuesday 16th October] night on the internet. Anyone with online access can watch the debates – as they happen – on their computer.

[The webcasts] will be archived and can be viewed at any time over the next six months… [and also indexed] so that people can go straight to the item – or speaker – they want to hear. Viewers won’t have to trawl through material they are not interested in.

The aim is to encourage interest in what the council and its 70 members get up to.

…Over the coming months meetings of the full council, the ruling cabinet and planning committee will be in front of the cameras.

S’being paid for with EU cash. Let’s hope the contract to run the service went out to proper tender and that it runs smoother than the BCC website!
