CLGdotTV - The Local Public Services Channel launches Phone-In programme


© CLGdotTV 2018

Party Conference season is almost upon us. What better time to launch a local public services themed phone-in programme.

How does it work?

1. We will record a CLGdotTV-PhoneIn programme each Wednesday between 7pm and 8pm
2. The programme will broadcast on-demand at 4pm each Thursday
3. Theme(s) and topics for these programmes will be published on twitter (@CLGdotTV) a week in advance.
4. If you want to make a call to any of the CLGdotTV-PhoneIn programmes you will need Skype. Skype for Business works but the free version is fine.
5. Once you have Skype please email us at and tell us:
  1. Which programme you want take part in? Dates and programme numbers will be on twitter. 
  2. Your Skype address
  3. Your name and what you do? (We need this but we will not reveal it on the programme unless you give us permission)
  4. Wether you are happy to be identified by name and/or organisation when you call the show. If not please provide a nickname.
6. We will then Skype message you to prove the connection, give you a programme time slot, confirm your broadcast preferences and provide some brief guidlines.
Now hear this!
We are limited in the number of calls we can use per programme. Given the state of the nation and the increasingly bizzare behaviour of many in the corridors of power you can be sure there will be something you want to comment on and soon.  It's free and, like free-speech, it's well worth having. Set up you Skype link in advance and follow us on twitter @CLGdotTV so that when Westminster or Whitehall "gets it wrong again" you can get your opinion heard.
Topics for our first three programmes are already decided
