Our fourth theme of Christmas is feasting! We have already covered gifting, connecting and reflecting. Feasting brings a lot of those themes together and we wanted to share some recipes, no-waste tips and a New Year's party idea from viewer Geraldine to make this year’s festive feast the best yet.
Many of us start pensively looking back over the year. Whether it’s because we’re reminded of our new year's resolutions or because we’re making plans and looking back at who has been dear to us.
This festive period is special for many because it’s an opportunity to see and connect with people again. Who would you like to connect with this season? Here are some activities you can do to connect:
For the past two weeks, the media has been dominated by climate change and the 26th Annual United Nations Climate Change Conference, known to most as COP26. As this year’s conference comes to an end and the agreements are made, we wanted to break down the events of this historic summit, try to explain what it all means and discuss what we could be doing to make a difference. We’ve spoken to our most loyal viewers and will be answering the burning questions you have surrounding this major political event.
Aaron Carty’s dream was to be a superhero for his community. He initially began his career as a police officer at 18, but today he is an inspiration for many as the UK’s biggest Beyoncé tribute drag queen. Together TV's Diverse Film Fund filmmaker, Blaise Singh, captures Aaron's spactacle in "The Beyoncé Experience" showing on Together TV throughout Black History Month on Together TV from 19th October. He sat down with us and PA media for an exclusive interview about how he became the Beyoncé Experience.
Black History Month is a time for us to reflect, appreciate and commend the British history of the Black community in the UK. The reason being throughout our education and much of our lives, it has been true that the achievements and hurdles of the Black community are overlooked. Together TV’s 2021 Diverse Film Fund appointed five filmmakers to produce a short documentary uncovering Black British Lives Today. They will be premiered on Together TV’s channel throughout Black History Month, but the filmmakers insist that their stories are not unique. For instance, it only takes looking closer at an industry to see how the level of racial diversity impacts many individuals.
• Alex Graham, renowned founder and former chief executive of Wall to Wall Media, former chairman of The Scott Trust, Sheffield DocFest and PACT, has been appointed as Senior Independent Director at broadcaster Together TV
• Alongside this announcement, Together TV is celebrating its 21st anniversary as the world’s first community-owned national TV channel with the mission to create positive change
The life of a filmmaker can be enigmatic to those of us who haven’t dabbled behind the scenes and on set. Together TV’s Diverse Film Fund supported five emerging filmmakers with a £10,000 fund, mentoring and training. 2021’s filmmakers are Ikram Ahmed, Alexandra Genova, Sheila Kayuma, Jason Osborne and Blaise Singh.. The filmmakers had a varying level of experience, but this was to be their first TV credit. We sat down to hear first hand what a typical day looked liked for them.
