LOST TV FILMS – CAN YOU HELP?

Stroud Life report that Matt Spires from Bussage spends his spare time tracking down what’s known as “lost television”. That means TV network films that were not archived but may still be languishing on an old VHS tape, or an old reel to reel can in an attic or shed. 2013 is the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, a show which currently has 106 episodes missing from its past! Can you help find them? Anyone who turns up anything that Mr Spires may be searching for can contact him by emailing mattspires1@yahoo.co.uk.

STROUD COMMUNITY TV REPORT FOR TRANSITION STROUD AGM:

Here is our brief report to Transition Stroud: We have over 950 films on the website! The Transition section now has 47 films. We are adding new films almost every day. We are getting over 1,500 views per month on our website; this went up to 3,000 during the Stroud Community TV Awards earlier this year. However not all are watching films with every visit; it is harder to assess from our statistics how many view films and for how long. In the Awards we had various categories including Best Local Film, Best Community Event film, Best campaign film and Best Community Project film. The local press reported on this and local film makers, newspaper editors, BBC researchers and Oscar shortlisted and BAFTA nominated producers were involved in judging. We hope to repeat these awards next year with a new award, a Best Transition-related film award. Every week Stroud Community TV gets requests to make several films; we are unable to respond as we don’t have enough volunteers. We are still exploring further funding possibilities to enable us to help more people make films.  Our Facebook page has 113 likes, Twitter has 206 followers with over 460 Tweets and our monthly newsletter has around 70 subscribers. We would welcome more volunteers!! Thank you to Transition for support in helping this project grow.
