Hi Fred and everyone

I am proud to say that Dublin Community Television, following more than a 
decade in planning, lobbying and building, is today celebrating the first 
birthday of its official launch last July.  With seven full-time staff, 
lots of short-term people and volunteers, we now produce up to 40 hours a 
month of community programmes (as well as broadcasting selections from 
around the world), much of it in our new state-of-the-low-end-art 
studio.  This volume of own-produced stuff puts us second only to RTE - the 
public service broadcaster here!

You can find out more about DCTV at www.dctv.ie and we go out on cable all 
over Ireland (Republic only!).   But you can also stream our own-produced 
programmes from Vimeo (the cheapest way we could find to stream high 
quality), and all can be torrent-downloaded (all creative commons. of 
course).  See: http://vimeo.com/user950597/videos/sort:date  for about 55 
programmes, including local and international campaigns; drama made by 
school children, our own news programme called The Sound; and lots lots more.

You can even see me producing/presenting a few! e.g. 
http://vimeo.com/4899546  a panel discussion about a radical magazine in 
Ireland of the 1970s called 'Ripening of Time' that many of us read and 
wrote for.

We believe that right now there is a huge obligation on all of us to 
develop and get alternative ideas out, to confront the current 
financial/economic crisis with ideas that have the potential to generate 
systemic change, not simply a return to the status quo of consumerism and 
ever spiralling 'growth'.  So we are really trying to build a platform, as 
well as people skilled and confident to do this, in television and video.

In solidarity with all of you...  lets keep building these bridges sand by 
all means view, download and screen any of our stuff you like!

Chair DCTV.
