Philately in media

How can you find philately in living sound and animated images, in the news or in its historic interest, without being the annual postal rate increase and a pro-governmental biased journalist nostalgicly remembering the 20 centime stamp of 1849?

Timbres magazine launched with its February 2008 issue the sale of a new DVD about the philatelic TV show Télé-philatélie and its presenter Jacqueline Caurat. It is in the same path as TV Timbres and a first DVD by editor-in-chief Gauthier Toulemonde.

In the United States, since 1998, Lloyd de Vries has been telling a short weekly article for CBS and its affiliated radio channels. He comments the philatelic program, the collectors' and postmen's habits, etc. Transcriptions are readable on The Virtual Stamp Club.
