A documentary on local TV?
You're dreaming! They're far to expensive. Only the BBC can afford big projects like that, and even then you usually end up teaming up with another broadcaster from the US or Canada.
By the time the bidding process has finished, any company involved with a local TV station will be so far in the red that they'll be desperate to rake in cash. Every program will have a premium rate angle. The news will have a topical premium rate text "quiz" after it. Maybe "guess how many people have been killed in Baghdad today?".
Local farming programs will have a "guess the weight of the hay we harvested this week?" premium text quiz.
Cookery programs will have a "guess how much sugar I will use in tonight's dessert?" premium text quiz...
And then, they'll be real-time interactive live quizzes where you, the viewer can participate! Wow!
Participate via a premium rate text quiz of course.
My town actually has a local radio station. By local I mean really local. A micro station if you like. The signal barely makes it the 4km from the town centre to where I live. I think I've tuned into it twice. Both times I was greeted by several seconds of dead air before anyone said anything. Try doing that on a "proper" station on the emergency drop in recording would have triggered!
So local TV is either going to be painfully amateur, or painfully commercial.
Both obvious failures.
