Notts TV - 22 programmes in 6 months

03 Nov 2014 - By Kate Chaplin

Blog by Inclusive's Nottingham researcher Kate Chaplin on how we have produced  22 TV programmes in 6 months.

Here at the Inclusive Nottingham office, we have had an extraordinary six months creating programmes for the local channel, Notts TV. So far, we have made 22 programmes for the channel - 9 for the Nottingham 'Now and Then' series, and 13 for the 'Day in the Life' series.

As a Researcher at Inclusive Digital, I have been responsible for gathering content as well as sourcing contributors and finding filming locations.

Nottingham 'Now and Then' is presented by a pool of local history experts, who explore the city's heritage and discover how the past has shaped Nottingham today.

For each episode of 'Day In the Life' we go behind the scenes at a range of venues and organisations to find out what it takes to run each place; from the National Ice Centre to Nottingham's local market.

Here is a list of our programmes so far:
