Hi -tech message

Last year the Queen's Christmas speech was broadcast as a podcast for folks to read on their iPods. This year she is going one better by broadcasting on YouTube.

There is already an official Royal Channel set up on YouTube with eighteen video clips available for viewing. It had 1,523 subscribers and had been viewed 49,328 when I just checked it.

On the channel are videos of the first Christmas speech that the Queen made on television along with footage of her accession to the throne, the Queen Mother's wedding and insights into Prince of Wales' duties. All fascinating stuff, delivered with commentaries in impeccable BBC accents.

So no more having to interrupt Christmas dinner to listen to HRH, you can watch and listen to her at leisure.

I just hope the message is as up-to-date as the means to deliver it.
