In 2010 the BBC announced 'Project Fabric' as the new metamorphosis of its Digital Media Initiative - aka Don't Mention It... Google why ;-(

In this video a slide shows the proposed use of Premiere Pro (and FCP) - its discussed at about 11 mins in:

" We will be able to exchange material between what we call 'Craft Editing Systems', FCP - we have 2500 - and Avid - we have even more, and 'Desktop Editing Systems' (Premiere Pro and Cinergy).

Now the desktop editing systems are playing a very important role - when you produce a programme you have to book a Final Cut suite to do your editing, and you have to book that at a certain time.

What will happen is that everyone - literally everybody - will have access to desktop editing systems where they can actually choose whenever, wherever,to start using a desktop editing system.
So this has gigantic implications for the whole of the BBC.

All of a sudden people that on paper don't have the qualities to do this editing have access to editing machines, and they might be very good..."

There is further info about 'tools for everybody' and the 'experience of the editor' at 17.40 mins in.

The whole presentation is interesting from a Cloud collaboration point of view - the BBC's thinking (as of 2010...)
