In the late ’70s and throughout the 80s, Winnipeg experienced a “golden age” of public access television. Anyone with a creative dream, concept or politic would be endowed with airtime and professional production services.
Artist and OMG Buddy Daniel Barrow has curated a hilarious and moving collection of these programs that he presents with a mix of live narration and overhead projected slides. The collection is called Winnipeg Babysitter, and Daniel will be performing it in Chicago on October 17:
