Glass on television

Channel 31 television visited the 2014 Festival of Glass Expo on Sunday 16 February and interviewed Festival convenor Doug Carson.

A moment at the Glass Expo
Channel 31 covered the inaugural Festival of Glass in 2011 at the Potato Shed in Drysdale, so it was good to welcome them to what is now a much larger and more popular event.

Coverage of the 2014 Expo is scheduled for Channel 31's weekly 'Geelong News' programme on Wednesday 19 February at 6.30pm. The news crew spent almost an hour at the Expo, so their coverage of the event should be comprehensive!

The Festival of Glass is, of course, an ideal event for television, with lots of engaging 'photo opportunities', interesting exhibitors and excited visitors (no, really!). We keep saying this to the 'mainstream' television channels, but so far they've not responded. Maybe next year.

Channel 31's full title is 'C31 Melbourne and Geelong - the Melbourne Community Television Consortium'. It's a not-for-profit community television service providing locally-based news, entertainment and information. Transmitted from Mount Dandenong, C31 presents the many faces, voices and issues of Victoria's diverse communities that you don't find on 'mainstream' television.
