Edition 1


Welcome to the first edition of “Headline”.

Each week you can look forward to all new content as we head towards the reunion on October 8th 2011.

Week by week, new stories, pictures and videos will appear documenting our part of Access Video history.

In this first edition, our “Feature” article looks at how two Community Access Video Centres came to be setup in Melbourne’s West.

Reunion International Pictures is put under the spotlight in “Profile”, finally revealing to the world who they are.

“Backstage” goes behind the scenes at the world premiere of “Scarless - The Movie” on Melbourne Cup Eve, Monday November 4th 1991.

Our “Video” of the week uncovers an interview by David Grech with Turtle Video’s first Centre Directors, recorded in 1977.

We also go right back to where it all began in the “Galllery” . . . with lots of faces you might remember.

And finally browse through the “Paperfile” and read the proposal that may have been the blueprint for Community Access Video in Australia.

Enjoy the site and remember it’s an all new edition each week as we count down to the reunion!
