Neil Finn's ageless wonder

Today 09:00 GMT

Neil Finn's band Crowded House never reached such stratospheric levels of fame in the U.S., where the group is mainly known for its debut hit single from 1986, the ballad "Don't Dream It's Over," which has become something of a latter-day pop standard.

As time has passed, Finn's songs have grown progressively darker, with a little more tension and a little less release on every record. It was all tension and release — a harmonic version of the quiet verse/loud chorus dynamic that came to define grunge a few years later.

The O2 criticised for links to StubHub

Today 09:01 GMT

The O2 Arena's partnership with ticket resale company StubHub has been criticised after fans were turned away from a Foo Fighters concert this week.

As a result, tickets for O2 events purchased through StubHub are validated and cancelled - after which a new ticket and barcode in the buyer's name is issued.

Outside Voices: How Marketers Are Missing a Generation of ‘Unreachables’

Today 09:00 GMT

We call this audience segment “The Unreachables,” because the industry systems of record for planning and measurement guides media buys away from reaching them.

Unreachables aren’t as elusive as they seem, but in order to reach them one must look beyond the current incumbent TV planning and measurement tools. Traditional measurement firms like Nielsen, comScore and Kantar do an adequate job estimating content and advertising audiences on traditional TV screens, but there are big gaps in the data when it comes to measuring content and ad exposure in-app on mobile and tablet devices, on OTT devices like AppleTV and Roku, and via streaming services like Hulu and Netflix .
