The School Year Production Program is an after school media arts and work experience program, part of CCTV's Youth Media Program. Cambridge teens who participate in the program learn storytelling, camera, editing, lighting and audio skills, and they are paid to work as media artists, producing a variety of pieces exploring who they are, where they live, and what they believe in. Take a look at what they created this semester, on Channel 8 Tuesday June 30, 6-7:30pm; and on Channel 96, Thursday July 2 and Friday July 3, 8-9:30pm. Some highlights: Neverson interviews the managers of Inman Square restaurant Tupelo about their famous fried chicken in Chicken Talk With Nev; Matthew and Yanka explore our society’s new addiction to cell phones in Obsession (Phones); in Eat Well Do Well learn how to eat healthily to promote well being.

On Tuesday, June 30th, at 10am on Channel 9am, get nostaligic for Cambridge Open Studios of the past, from poetry slams, to a full-length live performance of the docudrama "George and Ruth: Songs and Letters of the Spanish Civil War" to a performance by local musician Tim Tsang.

Don't miss Supreme Master TV on Tuesday at Channel 96 at 11:30am. Supreme Master Ching Hai is the spiritual teacher of the Quan Yin Method, a fascinating spiritual group with an estimated 20,000 followers worldwide. Based out of Los Angeles, her organization promotes spiritual balance, environmental awareness, and veganism, with the largest number of her followers living in Taiwan. Supreme Master TV shows constructive news and programs that foster peace and promote healthy, sustainable living. Highlighting displays of excellence by both humans and animals; true, inspirational stories; and what some might call miracles, the show focuses on cultural diversity, vegan lifestyle, and environmental topics.

If you're in the mood for something a bit noir, the spot for you is on Channel 96 on Tuesday at 1pm. The Central Square Detective Agency will be showing Episodes 1-3. In the pilot episode, two detectives track down an MIT grad student's research project: a self aware humanoid robot with superhuman strength. In the second installment, our gumshoes try to track down a missing Harvard student for his jilted fiancee... but have they stumbled upon something much more sinister? As you might guess, the answer is yes. Episode 3 is a wildcard. Literally anything could happen, so I for one will be watching, and I recommend you do the same.
