See Different: A Manifesto


We see ways that society can be fairer and better for everyone.

We're acknowledging
and celebrating the amazing work and vision of hardworking journalists, filmmakers, campaigners, community organisations and others working to highlight social issues and offer positive alternatives.

We're developing
a new approach to television.

We're building
a platform to complement mainstream media by supporting and empowering other voices seeking and offering positive social change.

We're promoting
progressive views, values and voices in order to offer the opportunity for real debate and dialogue that challenges the existing bias in mainstream media.

We're supporting
filmmakers, content creators and owners; acknowledging their endeavours by highlighting films and videos that cover people, stories, topics and issues frequently marginalised by the mainstream broadcast media.

We're working
towards an egalitarian, equitable and ethical programming and business model that will share ownership and revenues collectively with contributors, collaborators and our audience.

We're embracing
technology to provide a simple, cost-effective, scaleable platform for the benefit of users.

We're involving
groups and communities across the UK to truly reflect the richness and diversity of ideas and of people in our society.

We're collaborating
not only with bright, original, dedicated filmmakers and journalists,
but also with trade unions, co-operatives, social enterprises, campaigners, social activists, educational institutions, community and grass roots organisations and socially-conscious individuals.

We're doing this
because we believe in a better world.

We're seeing 'different'
