London Event: Visualising Radio

Wednesday 3rd October | 6pm for 6.30
The Gibson Building, 29-35 Rathbone Street, London, W1T 1NJ

Visualising Radio

Young Britain’s most popular music search engine is YouTube. With a visual angle becoming ever more important, how can music radio lead the way?

Joe Harland, Head of Visualisation for BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra, and his team are at the vanguard and he’ll tell us how they do it.


Joe Harland – Head of Visualisation, BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra

Joe started in radio as an independent documentary maker in the mid-90s, making music specials for BBC Radio 1 and Radio 2 before joining the Evening Session and then producing Jo Whiley from 2000-2002. Whilst there he introduced ‘cover versions’ to the Live Lounge and developed the brand into one of the world’s most important live music showcases, leaving the slot in order to bring Zane Lowe to the network.

Joe has worked with artists from Madonna to Metallica, even producing Eminem as a presenter along the way, and since 2010 has led the innovative Visualization unit for the networks. He and his team have created massive digital and visual impact with their work, from Ben Howard’s multi-million viewed Call Me Maybe to the unique Chris Moyles 52 Hour Special, and continue to pioneer new methods of working and fresh ways of reaching young audiences with both station’s extraordinary content.
