Local Government TV
For those who enjoy the coverage of the agricultural committee of the House of Lords on BBC Parliament, news of the launch of Local Government TV will come as a thrill. They were demonstrating it at a local government reception, with footage, challenging all stereotypes of local government, featuring a man with a beard walking up some steps to go to a meeting.
What I want to know is how the discussions went which arrived at the conclusion that what Sky needed to increase its range of channels was one specifically devoted to local government, and who the target audience might actually be. As an incentive, there will be a modest prize for anyone who can contact me with proof that they have actually watched the channel themselves, or know of anyone else who has done so.
