Lord Puttnam Talks About The Climate Change Issue
The Creative Social Blog has released a series of interviews with David Puttnam, the film producer and politician, speaking with him about his return to advertising and his views on mass media in general.
As Chief Executive Officer of Columbia Pictures in the late eighties, Puttnam was criticized for what some saw as a condescending attitude toward the Hollywood film industry. In 2002, as a lord, he chaired the joint scrutiny committee on the Communications Bill, which was widely interpreted as being aimed at stopping Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation from buying Channel 5. This past summer, he chaired the Joint Committee on the Climate Change bill.
