Meet your city councilors on the Councilors’ Corner. The idea for the show started when Gloucester City Councilor Jamie O’Hara thought it would be a great idea for the community to get to know the city councilors, and to find out what they are working on at City Hall through the magic of television. Former City Councilor, Jeff Worthley hosts the show. You can tune in next week to watch the show’s premiere, with City Council Chair Joe Ciolino, on Tuesday, May 24 at 3:30 pm. The show also airs on Wednesday at 3:30 am; Thursday at 7:00 pm; Friday at 11:00 am and 7:00 pm; Saturday at 12:30 pm; and Sunday at 5:00 pm.

On Wednesday, you didn’t have to leave Cape Ann to check out what’s new in the state-of-the-art camera and lighting gear, because Cape Ann TV had it all at the station for our Pro Video Meet Up. Everyone grabbed a sandwich as they came through the door, then looked at, and demoed the cool gear on display at the station.

The second presentation was by JVC representative Ken Freed on the GY-LS300 4K S35mm Camcorder. This camcorder is breaking ground as it is easy to use as a run and gun camcorder camera, but it also delivers a film-like image like a DSLR camera.

From that data they work with their scientific partners to advise educators and policy makers on wise stewardship of the oceans to: reduce pollution, prevent the collapse of marine mammal populations, maintain human access to fish and other sea life, and promote ocean and human health.

The movie also airs on Tuesday, May, 3 at 7 pm; Wednesday, May 4 at 10 am and 2 pm; Thursday, May 5 at 5am and 6:30pm; Friday, May, 6 at 7:30pm; Saturday, May 7 at 2pm and 10pm; and Sunday, May 8 at 12pm and 11pm.
