Independent production company Ten Alps says it will begin to roll out its internet-based Public TV service in November. Ten Alps—which produces Teachers' TV for the Department for Education and Skills—said a full launch of Public TV would take place next spring.

Public TV will aggregate video content from across the UK public sector, covering health, transport, the environment, and local and central government and offer it to web users via an open access site using both Flash and Windows Media formats.

Ten Alps said the Public TV team—headed by former Teachers' TV CEO Nigel Dacre—had "carried out a detailed review of the UK public sector and had identified over 100 public sector web sites that have videos".

Discussions had started with organisations about incorporating their videos onto the Public TV site, which would share advertising revenue with the organisations.

Ten Alps said Teachers' TV now had 1,200 programmes for online distribution.
