Hi all,

Anyone interested in the below? As I understand it, they want to  
cover the range of philosophies on Wikipedia - they already have  
people involved with an inclusionist or middle-ist point of view, but  
no-one from a deletionist viewpoint.

> A bit more about the series: we're marking the 20th anniversary of  
> the creation of the World Wide Web with a major multi-platform  
> event: Digital Revolution (working title). This comprises an

> digitalrevolution/), and four landmark documentaries for broadcast  
> on BBC Two at the beginning of 2010, in the UK and across the  
> world. Revealing the longer hidden history of technological  
> innovation, we will assess the meaning of an extraordinary  
> phenomenon now transforming our everyday lives, communities and  
> institutions.
