For a couple of years I've been making videos on youtube for my channel Bit Socket. Some of you have seen it, but a lot of you haven't.
Next week I have a meeting/pitch with a major British TV company, with the aim to make a new, enthusiastic, passionate, quality, fun programme about video games. I also happen to work at the TV company, and have done for a few years, so I'm not going into this scenario blind.
The TV company be looking for funding for the programme, and to do that I need to show that there is an audience out there that wants video games to be taken seriously enough by TV to make a good programme. To do that, can I ask you to take 3 minutes out of our day to complete this short survey:
Can you also share it with as many people you know that are into games and want to see video games done well on telly?
I realise the timing of this is odd, seeing as the Explosive Alan guys (formerly Inside Xbox) have just done the amazing feat of raising so much money on Indiegogo for their pilot. I really can't wait to see what they make with the cash, and I donated to the cause because I want to see good video games programmes on television. But, I have been in meetings about my project for a while now, and it's just starting to shift into gear. I believe that we deserve to have our hobby taken seriously, and get a quality programme about our pastime made by people that love it.
Thank you everyone!
