All, 
 
A message from Duncan Dallas as emails he sends to the list keep bouncing back to him: 
 
-- 
As Ed Prosser pointed out the Royal Institution web-video project is extremely interesting and has very good material. I had not known about it until now. 
  
But that is not a TV Channel. One advantage of a TV channel is that it can attract people who have no interest in science because they are just flicking through the channels looking for something amusing or interesting. Television is old-fashioned, but it is very accessible and easy to watch - even if you are just cooking! 
 
Also a TV channel is concerned about the size of the audience, not just the quality of material. So Television has to engage with the audience, and since that is something science communication is supposed to be doing maybe science could be the basis of a channel. 15 years ago TV channels were only interested in science if it was about discovery or controversy. Now the social, journalistic and political relationships with science are much closer and might produce a variety of programme ideas that would make a channel possible.  
 
As for a name, maybe News International would want to get some good publicity - so it could be called Sky-Sci!

Hi Rhys, 
 
You seem interested in the TV Channel. I am having a problem with my computer, which sends back anything I now send to psci-com. Could you forward this e-mail onto jiscmail for me please? 
 
Thanks, 
 
Duncan

As Alom kindly pointed out earlier, the Ri Channel (http://richannel.org) is a web-video project we’ve recently launched incorporating many of the ideas and enthusiasms expressed in this thread, albeit online rather than through a traditional broadcast platform! 
We’ve been working really hard to create an online channel which essentially acts as a hub for the best science video on the web and since launch we’ve featured well over 200 videos on the site. We know curation of online content is becoming increasingly important so we’ve been working with a number of partners to not only produce new content, but to also pull together some of the amazing content that already exists online. If you take a look at our best-of-the-web (http://richannel.org/best-of-the-web) and collection (http://richannel.org/collections) sections you’ll see we’ve already got lots to get your teeth stuck into and we update these on a weekly basis.  
 
We’re also creating a lot of our own content, Tales of the Prep Room (http://richannel.org/collections/2011/tales-from-the-prep-room) and DemoJam (http://richannel.org/demojam-0) are just two of the projects we’ve been working on and that’s not to mention our Christmas Lectures and evening events being made available also. As we’re online we’ve also got the ability to provide more interactivity than the traditional broadcast medium, expanding on our videos are timecoded transcripts and ‘footnotes’ which scroll along during video playback to provide additional learning resources. 
 
Most of all we really value working together with the community, so we’re keen to hear your thoughts and especially from anyone interested in working with us to produce or spotlight new content – whether individuals or organisations. The more the merrier, in fact. 
 
Although we’re not on TV, all our content is available on-demand, 24/7 and much of our own content is freely available to download under a creative commons licence – so you can watch it on your TV if you really want to!
