THANKS TO EDITOR LAITH GRAHAM
We're indebted to editor and cameraman Laith Graham whose multi-tasking enabled us to broadcast continuously for 18 months.
Laith took the reins from teenage editor Blaize Warden for Series #19 and #20 who followed his secondary teacher Ashley Hall who edited the previous three series after a long editing stint by fellow teacher Peter Staubli.
Laith's creative editing enabled Nu Country TV , Digital 44, to reach a wide section of Melbourne , Geelong and environs and way beyond on Catch-Up TV on the C 31 web page.
If you miss one of our shows you can see it repeated on the C 31 web page for about three weeks.
Nu Country TV is a feature of the C 31 streaming list on Digital 44.
