Philatelic videos

TV Timbres is a little asleep, but is certainly for the three last years, one (the only?) of the serious tentatives to produce audio-visual philately.

In the United States, the American Philatelic Society's President is taking initiative: post a philatelic video on youTube before 30 June 2009, inform Omar Rodriguez, and you may be the winner of the President Challenge awarded with two hundreds and fifty dollar of APS products and services.

Among a how-to-do-a-video guide, Mister Rodriguez points to his try on the history of Mexico and its provisional issues. If you prefer celebrities' letters, watch Tom Richards'.

All the participating videos are listed here.

Andrew Reeves-Hall, a Canadian living in the United Kingdom, filmed the last day of work at the Delivery Office of Whitchurch, on 2 May 2009: arrival and sorting of mail by sectors, then receivers ; the counter. Closures of offices and the reorganisation of the postal system has been under motion and debates for many years now in the United Kingdom.
