– time to shift the debate
I set up Community TV Trust [CTVT] in 1997 (it was incorporated in 1999, registered as a charity 2000) in order to pursue social and community aims and personal empowerment for people on a local basis.
My career in broadcasting stood me in good stead as a facilitator and trainer, I saw I could deal with anything.
I had worked on early access TV programmes at LWT and Granada TV. Once the power and potential of community media became clear to me, the direction was obvious.
