WESTON College is the first in the UK to launch its own television channel with programmes produced and directed by students.

CUTV is the brainchild of Weston College Music Curriculum Manager, Paul Raymond and son, Corry, 19, who is studying BTEC Media Production.

Paul said: "This is a brilliant opportunity and resource for students to come up with programme ideas and put them into action.

"We've got four DCLR state-of-the art cameras that have revolutionised filming so the programmes will have a very professional feel.

"Each film will have a bank of information and pictures if people want to see how it's been put together and will be shown on all campuses and available on the Internet."

Professional music workshops, gigs and drama performances will open up new opportunities for creative students.

An interview with Manic Street Preachers record producer Greg Haver will be one of the first transmitted in which he recalls what it's like to work in the music industry.

Corry Raymond, who has already worked as an assistant editor on the Sky comedy 'The Cafe' which was filmed in Weston, added: "There's an incredible amount of work to do and the results are great."

Local North Somerset Lib Dem Councillor and keen historian, John Crockford-Hawley, will present 'Your Weston' featuring local historical landmarks.

The first he explored was the Norman church in Uphill built nearly 1,000 years ago which overlooks the sea and has been names one of the most picturesque in Britain.

John said: "I'm delighted to present 'Your Weston'. I was a student at Weston College from 1963 to 65 and am very fond of it.

"I'd like to look at the history of the College and perhaps the music scene from the 60s to the present day but I also hope students will tell me what they'd like me to focus on.'
