EDINBURGH, Scotland, July 4 (UPI) -- Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore is to share his experiences in new media at the Edinburgh Television Festival.

Also speaking at the festival will be Sir David Attenborough, Armando Iannucci and the creators of the animated series South Park, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the BBC reported Tuesday.

Most of the speeches and talks at the festival will revolve around the theme of "the digital future" for television.

Gore will be speaking about his role as president of a fledging U.S. cable channel aimed at young people called CurrentTV. He is also a director of Apple Computers and an unofficial advisor to search engine Google.

Google will be represented as well by one of its most senior executives, Marissa Mayer.

She will speak about how she designed and developed the searching facilities and expanded the site across more than 100 languages.
