Red Alert

In the house

Posted by on December 13th, 2009

The Clerk of the House has opened up Parliament one step more with the launch of It’s parliament tv on line with a growing database of clips from parliamentary debates. You can search by topic or by MP. It allows you to pull up individual speeches, or questions from Question Time.

Designed by new media company Tandem, it is a lot more convenient than having to wade through an entire day’s video. And it makes it super easy to post a clip to your facebook or twitter.

Very cool.

    Looks good and I will use it. Volume is a bit low, but I can adjust that.

    Gr8 thanks Phil – admin Clare and I have been talking about having a play of the day bit on Red Alert from Parliament each sitting day. This should really help that.

    Hi Phil
    Did more testing… I’d installed the beta of Flash 10.1
    Reverted back to official version of Flash and it now works!
