Purvis, the former Ofcom partner, ITN CEO and current professor of television journalism at City University, will deliver a lecture entitled 'Calling Time on Analogue Regulation', which argues that a new Communications Act should introduce fundamental reform and calls for the end of analogue-style content regulation. The 2003 Communications Act will be almost a decade old by the time Digital Switchover is completed in 2012.
