The launch of the new, improved “SCATV2 YouTube Channel” (youtube.com/scatv2) is making local programs featured on Sierra Community Access Televsion available to a growing local, national and world-wide audience. Over 80 of the shows viewed in El Dorado County’s homes and businesses are now accessible to people without Comcast subscriptions who have Internet access.

With the growing use of computers, tablets and smart phones, people are using the Internet to meet their information and entertainment needs. So now a person at home, business, school or in a local café searching for information related to El Dorado County has a new way to connect with a broad range of programs “airing” on Sierra Community Access Television.

Around the world the SCATV2 YouTube Channel connects YouTube searchers with videos about the people, culture, history and land of El Dorado County. There is no other site on the Web with a comparable collection of video featuring our county.

A person visiting the City of Placerville website “About” page http://www.cityofplacerville.org/our_city/about/ will now find a link to the scatv2 YouTube “playlist” of 25 programs about Placerville. Two years ago SCATV2 launched live streaming of its programming to community residents who do not have Comcast. Live streaming of City Council meetings as well as the station’s own live streaming of daily programs is made available through the station Website, sierratv2.blogspot.com. The live streaming service is provided by Justin.tv.

Sierra Community Access Television is a 501c3 non-profit corporation run by an all volunteer crew. SCATV2 invites members of the community to submit their locally produced videos to Program Director Gary Campbell. Contact and submission information is available at http://sierratv2.blogspot.com. If anyone is interested in become a SCATV2 volunteer they may contact George Sabato at 622-8013.

There are historical films like Jay Bruce the Lion Hunter and Guy Nixon’s Nuggets of El Dorado. Huell Howser shares his specials on our county.

The SCATV2 YouTube “playlist” of 25 programs about Placerville includes: The late George McKee “Remembers Placerville,” flipping through his family album, sharing pictures and telling the story growing up in this historical town. Georges’s father owned Placerville Hardware and George had the Round Tent clothing store on Main Street.

Guy Nixon, in his Nuggets of El Dorado series, tells how Cherokee John Rollins Ridge was one of the first writers for the Mountain Democrat and shares the role the early Cherokee settlers in our area had on Gold Rush history.

Local historian George Peabody shares the story of the Deep Blue Lode, which runs under the current Eskaton Village in Placerville and all the way up to Camino, making it one of the richest mining sites of the Mother Lode. Other videos feature the story of Johnny Studebaker, a tour of Gold Bug Mine, and the historical Church of Our Savior ,which went under construction when Lincoln was president. There are also features on the Wagon Train, Hangtown Car Show and Kacie’s Ride.
