Hi,

I'd be grateful for copies of the papers mentioned in the following extract from the minutes of the BBC board in 2008.

An Overview of Proposals
Project Kangaroo

http://www.bbc.co.uk/aboutthebbc/running...

7.1 These two papers were considered together by the Board. The Board noted that the Trust had requested some clarity over how the BBC was proposing to release and manage its content beyond the public service window in linear and on-demand across the UK. The papers built upon the Public Service Commercial Boundary framework which had been considered by the Executive Board and Trust Finance & Strategy Committee in April 2007, and the iPlayer Public Value Test.

7.2 The first paper brought together the BBC’s overall plans for content after the primary window, acting as direction and context for specific proposals that were laid out as
separate papers for the Trust. The second paper provided an update on Project Kangaroo.

7.3 The Board approved the outline approach in the first paper and its onward progression to the Trust, noting that the detail around editorial management controls and a business model still needed to be worked through but that this would be finalised before submission to the Trust.

7.4 The Board agreed that the paper could be forwarded to the Trust, along with a number of other briefing papers accompanying the overarching paper.

Yours faithfully,

Philip Clarke
