NaSTA’s Advent Calendar & Christmas Message

Before the winter break is upon us, we have more NaSTA events lined up for December, and we’d like you & your station to be a part of them.

The NaSTA Advent Calendar

Every day throughout December, will spotlight a different station, and we want you to nominate your choice of programme. We’d like your station to choose it’s own favourite show of 2010, and upload it to us – it can be anything from a recently-made Christmas special, your Best Broadcast entry, comedy, drama, music or anything else that you’ve produced in the last twelve months. If you’d prefer, you can even broadcast a live show from your station straight onto

To send us your choice, simply upload it to with the same login details you used for Freshers’ TV, and send us a confirmation email to [email protected]. If you’ve forgotten your login, just email Andy Clark at [email protected]

Alternatively, if your station’s website video player supports embedding, just email the link to [email protected] and we’ll put it straight onto the NaSTA website. That’s also the email address to let us know if you’d like to reserve a particular date in December (for example, if you have a Christmas show scheduled for recording & would like to submit that as your choice).

The NaSTA Christmas Message

The NaSTA Exec will shortly be recording a special programme at LSTV just for NaSTA affiliates, with seasonal greetings from us all, along with some further information on NaSTA 2011 Loughborough and what to expect from NaSTA throughout the year ahead. It’ll be available as a webcast on, we’ll be sending every station a copy in advance of the Christmas break…and we want to hear from you too!

We’d like your station to send us your Christmas greeting – ideally no more than thirty seconds, with as many of your station’s crew on-screen as possible – as a seasonal way of introducing yourselves to other stations ahead of next year’s conference and other get-togethers/online meetings. Once again, please send your video to us via the NaSTA upload facility.

For both of these, we’d like you to upload your choice of programme/greeting by Friday 10th December.

We look forward to hearing from you…meanwhile, we hope you’re all enjoying the new, and there’s much more to come as we enter our busiest year ever, so stay tuned.

Finally, welcome to our three newest member stations – Rhubarb TV, MADTV and NU:TV…affiliation is now open so make sure you & your station sign up today!
