Original YT playout date: 12 December 2009
I broke my current YT strike (occasioned by an unfair copyright strike on my channel – now the TV station concerned has fairly withdrawn their complaint, but I was still waiting for YT to remove the strike on my account, which did happen in due course) just to promote a friend of mine, Alan Heath, of alanheath channel fame, who had received a proposal to take on a TV programme in the same style, only more produced, than his existing work on channel http://www.youtube.com/alanheath.
Many of my subscribers also watch Alan’s work, and he was too modest to put an announcement about this on his own channel, but we’re all very excited about it. – Another youtuber breaks into TV, that has to be a good sign for all of us, even those who like me watch very little TV. It shows that we are becoming the new mainstream, and that the modest amateur producer really can achieve the recognition that once was the domain of people fortunate enough to know people in TV.”
Back in those days it was me that could meaningfully promote Alan, whereas now he has got into the Camper Van space, there is no stopping him and his channel became much bigger than mine.
