Thank you for visiting Our Heritage TV (OHTV). The channel is about covering Black and Asian contributions to UK society in the fields of art, civic service, civil rights, education, enterprise, entertainment, media, politics, science and sport since 1900 to the present day. It is both a celebration and critical look at our contributions and above all it is your chance to help record that history via the documents, videos, stories etc... that you share with us right on this Channel and Archive.
We want to make OHTV the default digital resource for understanding the impact Black & Asian life has had on the UK in the 20th and 21st Century. We do not cover the great contributions made before then but we will make references to these contributions across our platforms.
OHTV would like to thank the Sponsors of this Channel – the Heritage Lottery Fund for their support in funding and helping the channel concept to develop.
We would also like to acknowledge those who have contributed to the content of this channel including providing source of contents, training and invaluable advice. Take a look at our Digital Toolkit for guidance on how to use Our Heritage TV.
Our thanks also go to the Archives & Museums from across the Country, BBC History, the Black and Asian Studies Association, Black Cultural Archive, Oxford Companion To Black British History, Wikipedia, YouTube and the Archive Records from local and national media. And to our Patron and all our Ambassadors who have helped with their promotion and support of OHTV’s work.
And don’t forget, you can also access OHTV ‘on the go’ on your mobile via our special app “Our Heritage” that you can download from the App Store and Google Play.
Without your support, your contribution we would not be able to effectively gather, record and broadcast a wide range of information covering black and Asian contributions to living in Britain over the past 100 years or more. So get involved and spread the word – Black History is not just for October and Asian History in the UK needs to be properly recognised as well. That is what OHTV will aim to achieve and it is a privilege to play our part in showing that we value the contribution that Black and Asian people have made to the great story of the United Kingdom since 1900.
