Like a hair ball stuck in the throat of the corporate media, the Ministry coughs up two new episodes of alternative television. Be among the first to catch our new hour of subversive TV comprised of entirely contrasting segments no longer than 5 minutes each. Diverse, slick, DIY media produced without the artifice of the 20th Century mediasphere. The Ministry Of Truth says: KILL YOUR TELEVISION. The Ministry of Truth is a libertine collective of over 50 media makers agressively broadcasting from the Australian underground. We bring you attention deficit television across all platforms - free to air, web channel, mobile, download, DVD and file share. The Ministry reveals media’s banality by subverting the genre, serving up a chaotic blend of contrasting viewpoints and shying away from television that tastes as bland as a hospital dinner. www.ministryoftruth.tv

The Ministry of Truth is supported by the Brisbane City Council's Creative Sparks grant program
