This is a great new venture by Fahmi Fadzil and Mark Teh (both well know theatre practioners and much more), a new weekly Internet TV programme which features interviews with well known Malaysian personalities though not the kind of celebs talking about the usual kinds of things that you would get on terrestrial TV :
The show is part of PopTeeVee, a new media network initiated by Hardesh Singh (composer, producer, music entrepreneur & all-round good fler) and friends. In the very near future, PopTeeVee will also feature other channels, including a local music channel (The Wknd Sessions) and a youth/student-generated campus news channel.You can watch and download all episodes here, and if you subscribe to the group on Facebook you will know when next episode is up.
The latest episode features award-winning journalist Jacqueline Ann Surin*, author of Shape of a Pocket, talking about press freedom and those "spiked" columns.
Previous episodes have featured Ng Sek San (our friend who kindly lets us use his gallery for our readings) talking about the cutting of trees in his part of Bangsar, Adrian Yap of KLue/Junk, on Urbanscapes, the 'user-generated', day-long creative arts fest which happened last Saturday, and Shanon Shah, musician and activist, talking about his first play Air Con (which, hurray, I'm going to see tonight!).
Watch for the PopTV sign behind the speakers in these episodes. Hilarious!
