About Green TV
Green TV was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund to provide an innovative and exciting programme of environmental and heritage engagement through the arts for the Tees Valley. The overall aim of the project was to raise awareness of and increase public access to key areas of outstanding natural heritage within the sub-region.
Jeremy Garside, Chief Executive, Tees Valley Wildlife Trust said,
“Green TV has been an extremely positive experience. It has allowed us to experiment with completely new ways of interpreting the natural environment and to work outside our usual professional box. We are now not just thinking and talking about new ways of doing things, but actually seeing them happen.”
