Today – 31 January 2012 – 3VTV is launched. It’s a local internet-based TV channel for the three valleys that make up Blaenau Gwent in south Wales, UK.
On the website there are videos made by 3VTV themselves as well as from partner organisations like Breaking Barriers Community Arts, Made in Tredegar, etc.
Viewers are invited to upload or suggest embed links to their own films.
I especially like the navigation of films by map. That’s after all what local and hyperlocal are all about.
To keep up to date with developments you can follow @3VTV on Twitter.
Here’s a taste of the output. It’s a video called Pins and Things about a mother and daughter – Zoe and Jay – who run a haberdashery shop in Ebbw Vale.
Please help to spread the word about 3VTV because it’s great to see a new local TV channel like this launching.
