Today (Sun) sees the launch of Dee TV – a community web TV station- covering Dacorum – that for those who don’t know their Roman history- is Berkhamsted, Tring and Hemel Hempstead plus a host of Chiltern villages in Hertfordshire.
It has been set up as a private initiative by mum and daughter, Lindy and Mischke Weinreb, two of the more colourful people in the town, with local web and graphic designer, Alistair McDowall. Expect it to be an interactive TV station reporting on local events. Its initial site has lots of short films on it- a couple from local schools, interviews with local artists and musicians and a report of a local rock concert on The Moor at Hemel. It also provides a lot of coverage for local charities.
I have no personal interest in the site – but am really pleased to see more community activity and journalism in the area. So far it is feel good rather than controversial but there’s room for everything. You can see for yourself at http://www.deetv.tv.
