Series: The Opening Series

A unique treasure of grassroots community media. In 1985-86 Paper Tiger Television Collective, a New York based public access producers' group known for their imaginative and low-tech media critiques, in conjunction with the Boston Film and Video Foundation, produced the pilot series of Deep Dish TV Each program comprises segments by community TV producers around the country. The series was offered free of charge to access stations that wanted to record it off the satellite. The Paper Tiger collective formed ten production teams including some people who were new- comers to access production. Over 186 stations down-linked the first series. There are 10 one-hour programs in the series.
