Regions: Latin America and the Caribbean

This project aimed to create a mobile video library for the purpose of establishing a distribution and broadcasting network for local and Latin-American audiovisual production. As the third largest city in Bolivia, Cochacamba was selected for the launching of this project.

The objective of this project was to install a television broadcasting centre, on the campus of the University of the West Indies, to produce and broadcast throughout the region audiovisual programmes for training and research, as well as news programmes, from a low-power transmitter. It includes the set-up of a laboratory to provide training to 30 trainees on station management and the operation of a television studio.

This project was conceived as a result of the difficulties faced by producers in the Andean region, who lack the means to compete with programming imported from industrialized countries.

As the title makes clear, this project seeks to establish a Video Production Unit specializing in educational programmes on subjects in the formal school's curriculum as well as in health, culture, agriculture and tourism. It is also aimed at making valuable pedagogical material available to teachers.
