Deep Dish TV: Community Video from Geostationary Orbit

by DeeDee Halleck

Leonardo, 1993, v. 26, no. 5, pp. 415-420

Popular electronic tools, in combination with satellite delivery systems, offer an opportunity for wide distribution of grassroots media. During the Persian Gulf War, peace activists and independent video producers pooled energy and resources to create a ten-part series on issues not covered by mainstream networks. These included such topics as the history of the Middle East, the resistance to the war and the effect of military expenditures on the U.S economy.
