Information on the video files....
The video files available for download are MP4 files, but they are not high quality files intended for use on TV stations
If you would like to use any programmes on your TV station please contact our media desk at email@example.com – we will establish a contract with your TV station and then allow you access to high resolution files
Please note that the videos must be shown in full and are not allowed to be edited.
Ideas for using the video files....
Play the programmes at suitable times of the year to remind your audience of good agricultural practices
Invite some farmers or a guest from the extension service, ministry or a local NGO and use a programme as a starting point for a discussion
Why not have a phone in on a subject raised by one of the programmes...
Use the videos as part of a magazine style programme on agriculture, food and rural developmen
Be seen to be part of your community...
Why not offer extra services to your viewers by distributing DVD’s of the videos by agreement with Access Agriculture
Remind viewers that other videos are available from the Access Agriculture website
Organise a viewers’ event, for example at an agricultural show, so that you can get direct feedback from your viewers
You can also upload your agricultural content to Agtube – and if videos are already on Youtube or Vimeo then the URL’s can be copied across
Let us know how innovative you have been and get your story onto the Access Agriculture website!
Be seen! Be different!
