We’re celebrating 15 years of our arts-news archive with a series of compilation programmes. Arts-news began in 2000 as a way of providing short art and literature related news items for the local TV channels Edinburgh Television and Channel Six Dundee. Several of these short clips were combined into programmes.
Our arts-news channels Summerhall TV, Art in Scotland TV and Writer Stories TV deliver short clips on contemporary art, literature and performances. Our sites are built upon an archive of almost 2000 film and TV clips that stretch back to the 1970s (on www.summerhall.tv).
Summerhall TV will be screening the first edition of Not The Late Review, a film by Robert Morgan featuring a discussion on the arts in Edinburgh chaired (informally) by Kevin Williamson of Rebel Inc and (more recently) Neu Reekie!
Art in Scotland TV will be showing a programme on the 5th British Art Show, an impressive array of contemporary artists showing across Edinburgh in 2000.
On WriterStories TV we have The Book Show comprising a compilation of our earliest author interviews – including Moon Unit Zappa and Terry Jones – from our early days interviewing at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
