Here's how PalTV came to be...
“PalTV’s mentorship programme revolutionised my plans for the future and made me realise that a career in journalism was for me. Doing the mentorship programme gave me confidence in areas from presenting to production. Since graduating from the scheme I’ve held 4 different positions within PalTV and I’ve loved every minute of working with our amazing team.”
Lucy (Head of News), Graduate of PalTV's Mentorship Scheme
"PalTV's regatta coverage represents one of the most ambitious livestreams undertaken by a student broadcaster in the UK so far. Both days feature commentary, competitions, interviews and creative segments receiving over 10K views."
Christian, Head of Marketing & Publicity (2022)
"Our livestream uses a powerful streaming and rendering server, which is capable of broadcasting 1080p and live content. We also use professional and enterprise consumer software, alongside proprietary software which was written exclusively for PalTV."
Chris Ray (Head of Broadcasting) 2023
"Palatidates has genuinely had a cultural impact on Durham, I still hear strangers talking about it when I'm out and about"
"We capitalised upon PalTV’s remote operation experience built during the pandemic to teach Foreign Correspondents (FCs) how to make high quality content using just their mobile phones. In some cities, we benefit from multiple FCs who can pool resources and work together in mobile teams, whereas in other cities, we only have a single FC working independently. The common, enabling factor for the Foreign Correspondent programme is the extensive support provided by remote producers and editors, who all work together as part of a cohesive team to deliver content."
Rahim Hussain (Head of Foreign Correspondency) 2023
