Gift to charities for Triangle TV’s 5th bday

Gift to charities for Triangle TV’s 5th bday

Triangle Television celebrates fifth birthday with a gift to charities

Triangle Television will celebrate its fifth birthday by screening programmes about the work of local charities.

As New Zealand's first non-commercial regional television station, Triangle first broadcast to greater Auckland on August 1,1998. Today it broadcasts to an ever-increasing audience 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Triangle will celebrate its landmark fifth birthday by giving all registered charities that do not currently promote themselves on television the opportunity to screen a video about themselves and their work. Each charity screening a programme will be asked for a token contribution to help meet just part of the transmission costs incurred.

Charities will be asked to supply Triangle with a video tape about their group which can be a maximum of 28 minutes in length.

Triangle Television Chief Executive Jim Blackman says the station has opted to observe its birthday by giving something back to other groups that serve the community in the region where it broadcasts.

"Our birthday gift to charities reflects who we are as a broadcaster. We constantly empower people and organisations across the board to broadcast programmes about their communities, people, special events and local issues.

"This is a great opportunity for charitable groups to tell their story to Auckland simply by providing us with a video tape about their organisation and its work."

Meanwhile, Auckland Mayor John Banks has offered Triangle birthday congratulations and best wishes for the next five years.

"Congratulations TTV - you have done good. These last five years you have served the interests of Auckland so well. We are proud of you.

"You've been good for the ethnic minority groups, commercial organisations - in fact you've been good for the whole community. Triangle TV has made a difference - a big difference." Triangle Television is Auckland's only regional television station and operates as a public broadcaster, combining a mix of regional-access television and international news and information programmes.

Charities that wish to participate in the Triangle Television offer should contact the station for video guidelines. The videos should highlight the organisation and its work and cannot be used as a fundraising tool.

Triangle Television is non-profit making and operates with no funding from NZ On Air. The station broadcasts 24 hours daily from UHF channel 41.
