Noel Duffy, Director Path To Freedom, Letter Regarding Recent Events

Dated: 08 February 2010

I am writing this personal message to all of you who have given your support to our feature length documentary Path To Freedom.

As many of you know we had the official launch of the national fundraising campaign for Path To Freedom, in Wynn’s hotel on Wednesday, 3rd of February. Where the Collins 22 Society officially announced the commissioning of S.W.V Studios to produce Path To Freedom. However on Friday, I was told via a number of phone calls that:

The Collins 22 Society could no longer support the project and in effect it was now “parked”.

Our schedule for February 2010 is now out. You can see it as a PDF here and from the first of February it’ll be available in our new daily format over here.

So, if you are a community broadcaster in radio, work in a newspaper, are involved in a local community group or just an individual that supports the vision that DCTV brings to the air waves, then why not get in touch so we can suss out some way of getting word out about the little media revolution that is taking place over on Channel 802 on the NTL network.

Finghin Collins struck one absolutely perfect note in the Brahms. His playing is robust, articulate; his left hand played its part wonderfully. His body language offers the greatest assistance to the listener. The National Concert Hall presented Finghin Collins last night in a solo recital on the piano one of The Irish Times Celebrity Concert Series 2009/2010. read full story / add a comment

A series of features examining the background to the creation and development of mutant space.ie, an alternative Irish arts resource. The resource is set up to function as a co-op that works on the gift economy principle. In other words rather than use money in exchange for resources members use their own skills and resources as an alternative form of economic exchange.
Mutant space is open to everybody and anybody and does not differentiate between the artist and non-artist, professional or amateur, it is about supporting people who have ideas but not the resources to realise them read full story / add a comment

After he allegations that he had been having an extra marital affair with Waterford PR executive Monica Leech, Martin Cullen said some of his colleagues did not want to be associated with him. The former Progressive Democrat and current Fianna Fáil TD claimed that that his children had been subject to bullying and

He said he had felt like running down Kildare Street shouting: 'I am innocent. I am innocent'. He described the experience as being like 'waking up every day and being raped'.

Monica Leech received a payment of 1.9 million euro from a newspaper in libel damages after remarks made on RTE about her relationship with Cullen were repeated in print. RTE settled with her for a payment of €250,000. The Minister lodged proceedings separately but has not yet acted on them. By contrast, the average payment from the redress board (which was to compensate people for, in some cases, literally being raped every day) was €60,000. read full story / add a comment

You can download the schedule for January 2010 in PDF format at the link below.

http://www.dctv.ie/main/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/janu...0.pdf

We have also developed a special page where you can view the exact
timing of what is on each day here.

http://www.dctv.ie/?page_id=1349

Please allow us a day or two to get this working once we announce our
schedule every month.

A quick note on our scheduling: DCTV broadcasts in blocks of
programming. Look at each of the blocks like a strand of festival
programming in a cinema. Identify a programme you want to watch, see
what time and day the block it is in plays out and watch it as it
loops through out the month.
