About us

Community TV Trust [CTVT] seeds
community media projects through
the direct use of professional,
student and young person
volunteering. We work in Southwark -
south London where a landmark
open access community media
project, "Southwark.TV"
[], launched in
2003; in Cornwall - south west
England where various media
projects are under way including "St
Ives.TV" []; on housing
estates, with local authorities, with
local IT groups, Sixth Form Colleges,
and so on.
CTVT was founded by Chris Haydon
in 1997 and it registered as a charity
in 2000. Haydon's background as a
TV producer/director of 25 years in
British broadcasting enables him to
work across the whole array of
media projects as facilitator and
where necessary and applicable as
hands-on producer.
CTVT runs monthly film screening
events in Southwark and in 2005
made two series of local TV
discussion programmes for the UK's
Community Channel.
Currently CTVT is developing large
scale projects - in the UK Somali
community, and for West Bank
Palestinians ... both to use the model
of community media running in south
London across the borough of
Southwark. Media training and web
publishing come together to help the
ordinary citizen find their voice and
have their say.
The core of CTVT remains small with
volunteering raised on a project
basis. Through "Southwark.TV" there
are links with like-minded
organisations in Australia, Brazil,
Myanmar and Palestine.
Campaigning against the negativity
rampant in mainstream media is
increasingly part of CTVT's activities.
Chris Haydon passionately believes
in the latent positive powers of local
media, for the individual and for the
