Get Spacey in the Morning

We are pleased to announce that we have gotten clearance from NASA to televise portions of their public feed on BCTV.
After reviewing their regular schedule of programs we decided to Televise NASA's "Education files" which air from 8-9AM daily.
NASA describes Education file segnments specifically designed for students and teachers. "From the wonders of space to our amazing planet Earth-inspiration and learning is the mission of the Education File".

BCTV-2 Program Director’s Report, October 18, 2007

Equipment and Facilities: All equipment and facilities are working well.
Our monthly utility bill was $91 for electricity and $13 for dish network.
Programming: We are now regularly showing a 1 hour block of Link programs, DW Journal and Mosaic. We are also showing “Explore Specials” which are documentaries provided to us by Link TV which are about international and national issues that seem well done and don’t seem to promote a particular political agenda. A new monthly program produced by Knox-Waldo Regional Economic Development Council is going to begin airing the first week in November. It's entitled KWRED-TV. I look forward to seeing the first episode.
Our weekly schedule is now being carried in the Village Soup Citizen.
The Journal and Independent have said they will begin carrying the schedule as well.
We have been showing a short documentary produced by Mayoral candidate, Michael Shell entitled "Land of the Midnight Sun". It does not include Michael or espouse a particular political agenda, so I did not judge it to be a political campaign video. It was more a profile of senior citizens. Michael is encouraging people to watch the documentary as part of his campaign.
We are also showing the 2007 Pie & Story Festival, numerous Belfast High School sporting events (both girls and boys), and a new season of Vaudeville revue shows. Both Vaudeville and The Mark and Tim Show are now being shown on various other public access stations around the state. Belfast is gaining a reputation for producing local shows, Not a bad thing.

Belfast Community TV-Channel 2 has become an affiliate of “Link TV, Television Without Borders". Link TV operates out of San Francisco and broadcasts programs that "engage, educate and activiate viewers to become involved in the World". Their programs provide a unique perspective on international news, current events and diverse cultures, oftentimes presenting issues not covered in the mainstream media.
Beginning October 16, BCTV-2 will broadcast DW Journal and Mosaic. DW Journal is an international news and business report that comes to us from Berlin’s Deutsche Welle Network and provides a European viewpoint on international events. Mosaic is a Peabody Award-winning compilation of news reports from the Middle East including Egypt, Lebanon, Israel, Syria, the Palestinian Authority, Iraq and Iran.
