Access to the Broadcasting Grids by Time Zone (TZ)

Broadcast times and placement

The amount of broadcast time per day for each country will be based on five key factors that are dynamically weighed:

1.   Population of the country or region  10-20%
2.   Number of listed businesses from that country  10-20%
3.   Web activity from that country or region.  10-20%
4.   Vetting of the content by web users.  10-20%
5.   Total minutes of  minutes provided within the given period. 10-20%


Daily Grid for all Broadcasts and Simulcasts

Overview:  Each day has 24 hours, 48 half hours and 1440 minutes.  Each week has 168 hours or 336 half hours, or 10080 minutes that need to be simulcast and broadcast.

Baseline  Schedule. Each time zone is programmed for one hour per day.  The first hour to be programmed within each time zone is their 1800-1900 hour. Obviously, it is prime time in every country of that time zone (TZ).

Prime Time - 1800 to 2300 of each day.  Time Zones 14 and 15 and Time Zones 20 to 24 open the  programming to accommodate countries in  TZ 10 (18 countries including Moscow, Russia), TZ 11 (28 countries including Helsinki in Finland, Athens in Greece, Cairo in Egypt, and Cape Town in South Africa), TZ 12 (36 countries including Oslo of Norway, Paris of France, and Chad and Namibia) and TZ 13 (20 countries including London of England). The bleed will push scheduling forward into the next time zone (up to four hours). Morning program scheduling will also accommodate  TZ 10, TZ 11,  TZ 12 and TZ 13 within TZ  20 to TZ 24. 

Every minute that is broadcast will also be simulcast on the web with an open collaboration event. 

In the early evolution of this product, short pieces (less than ten minutes) will be used from many countries who do not have an infrastructure to support productions.

The Variable Schedule.  All programming is constantly vetted by people on the web and the best within each time zone gets automatically indexed for open broadcast slots throughout the entire 24-hour schedule.

This variable-scheduling function can preempt  programming within a time zone's prime time if it is vetted and ranked above key thresholds. 

This variable-scheduling function may also be used by stations to review highly-vetted programming for download and rebroadcast at any time throughout the day.  

This variable-scheduling function may also be used by members to view  programming that is scheduled for a later time in the day or programming that has already run. 

Variable programming within each time zone is only related to the vetting activities on the web.  

There are approximately 190 countries and 20 regions that will be invited.  Each country could be allocated approximately 26 minutes per week; however, the amount of time will also be determined by the population size and four dynamics factors that have been explained.


The one-hour time slot: 1800 to 1900

Currently there are seven general production modalities:

1.  Advertisements: 10, 15, 20, 30 seconds

2.  Newscast Breaking:  30-60 seconds

3.  Introductions:  1-2 minutes
4.  Review and the Focus (leading pieces):  3-5 minutes
5.  Leading Pieces - Short Profile:  10-12 minutes
6.  Leading Pieces -  Docudrama: 26 minutes

7.  Leading Piece - Docudrama 55 minutes

Priority Topics

1.  Businesses that are loved in their community for their ethics and generosity and are respected in their industry for their leadership, successes, and integrity.

2.  The oldest businesses within a country or region.

3.  The fast-growing businesses within a country or region.

4.  The head of government for a country or region particularly to comment on the businesses, innovations, the thought leaders,  the landmarks, and the best educational programs.

5.  The favorite places within a country for reflection and fun as seen from the business owners or head of state.

6.  The wisest persons within a country who have not already been profiled.

There are seven time zones — 14-and-15, and 20-to-24 —- that will accomodate programming from those time zones with the most countries,  10, 11, 12, and 13.
