Smith, Colin F; Webster, William


William Webster


The Scottish Executive launched a six month pilot of interactive Digital Television ( iDTV) in September 2004, in collaboration with five partner organisations - Dumfries and Galloway Council, NHS Scotland (Health Education Board), StartHere, West Lothian Council and Young Scot. The aim of this pilot was to test the feasibility of delivering electronic public services and information via digital television. The pilot service provided information on a range of public services, including information about health, youth and local and community services. Evaluation of the pilot involved analysis of usage data, interviews with representatives of the pilot partners and iDTV viewers
