TATV is back, in another attempt to provide video news clips from Te Awamutu. The latest incarnation has a new interface (using Macromedia Flash technology) which we hope will make things a lot simpler. It's still experimental but we think it's a positive step forward.
We currently have a selection of video items from the Waipa Networks Rose & Cultural Festival. Unfortunately we couldn't cover all the events but we managed to produce thirteen short items.
The future of TATV remains uncertain but we will try to add new items whenever we can. In order to fix all the known problems and move into regular production we will need between $5000-$10000. If anyone out there is interested in sponsoring this project or otherwise helping out with costs, we would love to hear from you.
Remember: The Christmas Street Party takes place in Alexandra Street on Friday the 10th December. The party includes the Formula Two Outhouse Derby and the Harcourts Te Awamutu Christmas Float Parade. Get your float and/or team registered now!
