CMCI Director Dr Richard Howells has been interviewed by Finnish national public service broadcasting service YLE. Like the BBC, YLE is funded by a license fee and carries no advertising.
Appropriately, Richard’s interview was about the license fee system in the UK, which is a topical issue in Finland due to proposed changes in the system over there. Richard is a strong supporter of independent, public service broadcasting.
YLE runs four national television channels and six radio channels, together with 25 regional radio operations.
The interview was conducted in English, but as YLE broadcasts in Finnish and Swedish (together with some Sámi) translation is afoot before the feature is broadcast in Finland.
