NNPS-TV prepares small truck for big things

NNPS-TV's production team goes on shoots at all the NNPS schools all the time, recording video and cutting it together into shows like "This Just In" and "School Board Spotlight." But generally they do not broadcast live or do many multi-camera productions, but that may change in the near future.

Telecom may stream football playoff game

footballThe Telecom crew hopes to live stream the upcoming playoff game that pits Woodside High vs. Landstown High of Virginia Beach. The game is Friday, November 9 at 7 p.m. at Todd Stadium.

NNPS-TV team provides internal videos

The NNPS-TV production team has been busy in their "support" role since the start of school, creating videos for the school division, some to be used externally, but some specifically for internal use. These include introduction videos for the new superintendent, Dr. George Parker, and Chief of Staff, Rashard Wright. Other videos were made to help administrators communicate with the school board as well as with other administrators.

What's showing

A new series, "Discover China," airs in November. It took seven years to make this documentary series, so it should be comprehensive. "Barney’s Barrier Reef" is super-entertaining and full of fast-paced info that can be a little yucky, but great for kids. Slightly more subdued is "U.S. Presidents," which highlights some of our most interesting presidents. Donald Trump isn't in it, but you should still check it out! Last but not least, "100 Years, 100 Events" details important moments in history.

The Denbigh vs. Menchville football game played Tuesday, October 30, will continue to air this week on NNPS-TV Channel 47/17, Roku and Apple TV, and on the webstream at
