Community Media

A Handbook for Revolutions in DIY TV

This is the blueprint for a revolution in the creation and distribution of media. We will discuss how and why to produce your own television using free tools, and explore how to use Community Television as an instrument for social change.

This text is divided in to three sections: A manual, a meta-manual, and a look back. These can be consumed in any order.

This text takes a decidedly American approach to history and theory, and while I assume these ideas are applicable elsewhere, I do not have the expertise or knowledge to comment on any place other than the US.
