Broadcasting

Members of the 2020Plus team have had more than 20 years experience in producing, presenting, researching and writing for TV and radio programmes and new media projects.

This, combined with our ongoing research into social shifts and issues, gives us a unique perspective on the social impact of media and new media.

Members of the team have worked on programmes featured on, for example, the Seven TV Network (Australia), the Nine TV Network (Australia), SABC1 TV (South Africa), TVDenmark and BBC Radio 4.

This is in addition to the extensive social futurism and social commentary work undertaken by Mal Fletcher over many years. (See Social Comment for more.)
