The work presented in this Thesis details the development and evaluation of a working production methodology for the creation of a prototype television programme for the emerging medium of interactive broadcasting. With few production methodologies available for the creation of interactive television programmes, the research work used exploratory methods to identify suitable provision in the field of interaction that could be adapted for interactive television distribution by present and of future broadcast systems. As well as implementing a form of interaction currently unavailable through interactive television in the UK, the methodology presented utilises existing television stock. Through the constraints imposed in using existing recordings the work identified the steps necessary in implementing a process for converting the 20 material into 3D so that advanced interaction in the form of user control of a virtual camera could be implemented. Through the identification of a unique set of existing software tools and the production of a dataflow.for the successful integration of those software tools, a prototype interactive television programme was created using existing television stock. 80th the methodology and the programme created were evaluated in terms of whether the working methodology was understandable by third parties and in the acceptance of a new form of television content by an audience.
