Phone in

The Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival has unbranded its website pretty sharpish, as the newspaper today officially pulled its plug on close to thirty years of sponsorship.

BT has stepped in, to join YouTube as principal co-sponsors in a three-year deal, but their names goes below the line - "brought to you by, etc".  The BBC is listed amongst other "major sponsors" such as Sky, Channel 4, ITV and the BBC-part-owned UKTV.

In other news, we note that BBC Head of Current Affairs Fiona Campbell chairs the Advisory Committee, with members including Anna Mischon, Head of Production, Current Affairs. Still, that should leave Fiona's deputy, Jim Gray, ably minding the office.
