Conference to consider new Mediterranean satellite channel

A conference organised by the French Institut National de l’Audiovisuel to be held in Paris in April will discuss the creation of a new multicultural satellite TV channel for the Mediterranean area, according to French reports.

The channel is one of a number of government-sponsored projects under discussion ahead of an upcoming culture minsters’ meeting and the heads of government summit for the new Union of the Mediterranean in June, sponsored by French president Nicolas Sarkozy.
