Haymarket’s gadget monthly, Stuff, has had its video podcasts ranked Best New Video of 2007 by Apple’s iTunes multimedia store.
Other contenders included Jeff Randall’s videocast for Sky News, which came in at number 20.
The vodcasts are produced by Stuff.tv in house at Haymarket’s Teddington Studios and are downloaded more than 60,000 times each month.
