This session, presented by Jim Jarrett and Doug Whelpdale from BARB, will outline the development of this project, how it was delivered and the benefits for the television and advertising industry in the UK. Looking further ahead, Jim and Doug will also talk about what can be expected from BARB’s new research contracts and expanded panel from 2024.
