Australia's native peoples now have TV channel

National Indigenous Television, a new satellite TV channel for Austalia's native peoples that launched in July, is seeking programming in many genres made "wholly or substantially" in Australia, with the priority on programs by aboriginal Austalians and Torres Strait Islanders. See its statement of purpose and commissioning guidelines. NITV has offices in Alice Springs and Sydney. Canada and New Zealand have similar channels.
