New work by CCTV members airs each week on Channel 9, Sunday at noon and Friday at 7pm, and on Channel 96 Tuesdays at 1pm and Thursdays at 9pm:

This week, production intern Sara Meyers presents A Presidential Traverse, a GoPro-filmed hike through New Hampshire's white mountains. Sara has had a busy month — she also participated in a local film screening, Grrl Haus Cinema, in which she featured a funny, personal documentary about Angela Sawyer, local comedian and experimental musician, also produced at CCTV.

You'll also catch 30 Years of Fine Art, by Hiroko Okahashi, on the publishing of a book documenting the past 30 years of her experimental photography.

New episodes of Museum Open House air on Channel 8 Saturday 12/5 4-5pm, Monday 12/7 10-11pm, Wednesday 12/9 1-2pm, and Friday 12/11 4-5pm.

In Museum Open House, travel to Marblehead Museum with host Jay Sugarman, as he talks with director Pam Peterson about the museum's unique and historical collection, including an extensive Civil War collection and local archival material. After that, Somerville's Tiny Museum curator Judith Klausner informs viewers about the museum's recent exhibits, programs, events, and other opportunities for the general public.

Saturday on Channel 9, catch a Charles River-ganza: Revels Riversings (at 12pm), Cambridge River Festivals (at 2:15pm). Then, documentary features on the river's goose population, on its pollution, and on the 2013 Community Swim — the first to take place in 50 years.

River Sings past and present will repeat again Wednesday at 10am on Channel 9.

The Fall 2015 Youth Media Program is well underway, and students' films from this semester will soon debut on our channels. In the meantime, watch projects from CCTV's 2014-2015 School Year Production Program, Channel 96 Saturday 12/5 7-8:30pm, Channel 8 Monday 12/7 4:30-6pm and Friday 12/11 2:30-4pm, and Channel 9 Thursday 12/10 midnight-1:30am.
