- Interactive content provider Digitaloctopus has announced the appointment of Michael Grade as a non-executive director.
Grade, currently chairman of Pinewood Studios and the Octopus Publishing Group, has had a long and distinguished career in the media, spanning director of programmes at London Weekend Television, controller of BBC1 and chief executive at Channel 4.
He was awarded a CBE in the1998 New Year's Honours list.
