Capital of Culture launch

Taken from my Ambassador email

World's first 24hr Culture Promo…

1st Jan 2008 will see broadcasting history made when all 24 hours on Channel 167, on the Sky Platform, will be dedicated to the start of European Capital of Culture in Liverpool.

Information TV will host what is believed to be the first time in the world that anyone has booked all 24 hours on any channel to promote a single project. Starting at midnight on 31st December to midnight on 1st January anyone tuning in will see a promotional video for the year of culture.

This unique deal is part of a cultural relationship with Information TV that will also host a Capital of Culture Micro Channel across its service comprising of three fixed and three floating hours every day across the year – starting on January 12th – the day after the official opening to the year of culture.

Liverpool ‘08 officially begins at 20.08pm on Friday, Jan 11 with the People’s Opening at St George’s Plateau. This dazzling, free 40 minute show features Ringo Starr, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and many others.

And at 20.08pm on Saturday, January 12, Liverpool – the Musical will be performed at the new Echo Arena Liverpool. Ringo and the RLPO perform again along with a host of Liverpool stars for what will be the opening show for the Kings Dock venue.
