Fenger and Bjornstjerne Christiansen) & tenantspin (featuring tenant

Technology), and representatives from the Liverpool Housing Action

produce
interactive, non-commercial, television programs on the internet. There
are now more than twenty Superchannels worldwide, covering serious
debates more lighthearted and humorous topics such as food, leisure and
pop stars.

Since 2000, the tenantspin channel has been produced by a group of
housing tenants in Liverpool (UK) -- the majority of whom are elderly
and in high rise accommodation --
Tenantspin is a live interactive web casting studio managed by and for
tenants of Liverpool's Housing Action Trust in collaboration with the
foundation for Art & Creative Technology.Tenantspin aims to promote
