Subtitles to save the world 2 – Launch event video recap

The 19th of November saw the launch of our second subtitle report, which looked at subtitle data from the major British broadcasters over the period of 2018-2019 and examined how often environmental and climate change related terms appeared on our screens.

Our first subtitle report in 2019 it found that terms such as cats, cake and picnic had far more mentions than climate change on our TV screens – so how have our channels fared since then?

The full report can be downloaded here.

Below is a recap of the launch event for our second subtitle report.
