Labour Backers Launch Online Politics Channel

A group of Labour Party supporters have launched a political campaigning broadcast channel on the internet.

Headed by former Labour PR man Gez Sagar alongside director Mark Lucas, CAMPAIGNTV is an independent site which broadcasts videos and interviews regarding both British and international political matters.

Regular features include the Debate Show where journalists, politicians and activists can face-off on the latest issues, the Friday Interview with a top politician or campaigner and a user-generated zone where people can upload their own relevant videos.

The website is also set to host special campaign films from around the world and plans to make selected content available to download onto mobile phones and other handheld devices.

Its founders state: “CAMPAIGNTV meets the urgent need for a progressive challenge to the dominance of right-leaning political content on the internet.

“Alongside the bloggers, news media sites and official party political sites, CAMPAIGNTV is a different kind of internet offering - devoted to the best and most relevant new political films.”

Currently, CAMPAIGNTV features an interview with former Labour spin supremo Alistair Campbell and a video on the government’s Every Child Matters programme.
