Regional TV Australia is a website dedicated to the TV Stations outside the five major Capital Cities in Australia. We are interested in the history of Regional TV, mainly in the pre-Aggregation era, but also in the current operations of the major Regional TV networks. The project started in April 2008 on YouTube.

This project is run by Michael Costello, a resident of Melbourne, Australia. I enjoyed watching the independent Regional TV Stations BCV 8 and GMV 6 while on holidays on our relative's farm in Bamawm, near Echuca in Regional Victoria, and really miss the local content that used to set these stations apart before the Aggregation process took it all away in the early 1990s.

We would like to interview more former Regional TV staff about their work in the industry. If you are interested in telling your story, please contact Michael at michcos@optusnet.com.au
