BBC :: Lead Consultant for the BBC’s first Broadband Website

Planning and developing the BBC2’s new ‘showcase’ broadband website. The website was written in XHTML, CSS and JavaScript and featured many Flash 7 and 8 enhancements. The site contained many advanced features, including the BBC’s first use of Flash 8 streamed video and the ability for the site to dynamically render assets according to both GOIP, bandwidth and system capabilities. All elements of the site also had to be totally accessible. Whilst I was there, I was also invited on two occasions to meet with senior American representatives from Macromedia to discuss improvements to Flash both as software and as a platform, and also to advise the BBC’s design teams on how to co-work with developers on Flash projects.
