Keen City redefilineates news consumption in the UK

Keen City, the award-winning multimedia production company, today launches Britain Today, the UK’s pioneering, original and first online-only news show.

Keen City, the award-winning multimedia production company, is simply delighted to announce the launch Britain Today, the UK’s pioneering, original and first online-only news show.

In a bid to redefinilineate how internet users watch, view, consume and see information, Britain Today will - perhaps uniquely - seek to leverage the latent audience-yielding power of the digiverse to inform generations and generate information.

From today onwards, Britain Today will be counting down the top ten news stories of 2012, with a new instalment being added each weekday until December 21. The last 12 months have bought glory at the Olympics, a large-foreheaded Tory as Prime Minister and the same old story for women bishops, but have been missing the sort of news programme that can really do them justice. Britain Today seeks to change all that.

Moreover, given the travails that have beset institutions from the previously untainted Newsnight and the ethically unimpeachable News Corporation, Keen City is seeking to win back the trust of both the (wo)man on the street and the (wo)man who (w)atches video on the internet.

James Albion, one of the lead anchors for Britain Today, said: “News is a lot more than content, words, pictures and video stapled together in a convenient three-minute format. But it’s not an awful lot more than that, meaning we’re confident that Britain Today will become a major force in the world of current affairs really, really quickly.”

With a specialist team of five expert presenters on hand to separate fact from fiction and cold hard truth from lukewarm speculation, albeit not necessarily in that order, Britain Today will make revelations published on Wikileaks look like an extreme version of Jackanory.

Note for editors: It must be noted that Britain Today’s top ten rundown will inevitably exclude the period from 22-31 December 2012, which somewhat awkwardly, won’t have actually happened by the time the countdown has finished. Keen City is not liable for any events of national significance occurring during this period.

About Keen City

Keen City’s name is derived from a verse in the poem The Moon’s A Balloon by E.E. Cummings, which talks about a place full of pretty people, where everyone is in love and flowers pick themselves. The company is, however, based in London, which falls short of this description in at least a couple of ways. Possibly more. Especially when you’re on the Tube. Nasty business.

The company’s first short film, Alleyman, won the British Lion Award for Achievement at the British Independent Film Awards, 2011, and received an honourable mention at the 2011 Los Angeles Independent Film Festival. Other shorts, Darkest Before Dawn, Lonesome at the Cannes Short Film Corner in 2011 and 2012, as did The Tyrant’s Cup and Child, which are currently doing the rounds on the festival circuit. Keen City has a number of new projects in various stages of production, including comedy shows Ted Burns: Third Degree and Keen City’s Private Dick, as well as feature projects The Cult, Survivor, and Sex, Drugs, Some Rocks and a Few Rolls. Stay tuned.
