Option analysis

As the BBC Executive considers the future of BBC World News and the BBC News Channel in July, one hopes they'll also get a sight of James Harding's Big Idea, Newstream, to help them judge which investment strategy they prefer.

According to ideas shared at a conference in December, it will provide ten short videos, probably in portrait form, updated at various points in the day, to be watched on mobile phones. There is also a suggestion that some reporters' work will go "live" direct to phones, adopting technology pioneered by Periscope, Meerkat and Google Hangouts. The deaf have already flagged up that neither, so far, have subtitle options.

All this was supposed to be ready in March.
