Geldof’s new channel to “promote world peace”
Sir Bob Geldof – campaigner, humanitarian, human rights activist and occasional rock star – is set to launch a TV channel to promote world peace.
Geldof’s Ten Alps production company, which Geldof founded with Alex Connack and Des Shaw, is putting together a business plan for the proposed channel. The project will be funded Point of Peace, a Norwegian human rights organisation.
Ten Alps has stated that its production team is planning to launch the channel in 2008. It is hoped the service will include video, user-generated content and “social networking”.
While being listed on the Alternative Investment Market, Ten Alps is testing its website for public television at www.public.tv.
