Warming up

Warming up

Hello. Off The Telly is back! sort of.

Between 1999 and 2010, I ran OTT as a kind of online monthly TV magazine and during that time amassed a hell of a lot of content from a brilliant array of contributors. Then things got tricky. Mostly, because by the mid-2000s I was actually working in TV journalism, and that threw up a myriad conflicts of interest. So I stopped doing OTT.

But recently I’ve felt like I want to do something again. Some kind of internet-y TV writing. Which I might tweet about too. Nothing especially about current telly. Nothing that might cause me problems. But tangential stuff. And stuff maybe tapping into a  more recent but somehow lost era of programming. The ‘Say: “Gouranga”‘ years.

As I’m still sat on the offthetelly.co.uk domain, I thought I might as well use it again, but not before preserving the old site and everyone’s hard work. I’ve  shifted it to this location.

Make no mistake – this OTT won’t be as good as the old one. This will be sparse; no subsections, no massive essays. Just one stream of blog. I’ve no expectations  anyone else will contribute, although if someone wants to that could be fun. I know what my next post is going to be about – but not the one after that.
