Biographical history

Terry Ketler was a founding member of the Metro Media Society of Greater Vancouver. Metro Media was founded in 1971, one of the groups to grow out of Intermedia. Its activities included “training citizens in the use of of small format television equipment, cable casting community programs over Channel 10 in Vancouver, and, bringing awareness of communications policies to the community level.” In addition to providing access to video equipment for the alternative and art communities, Metro Media worked closely with educational and social service agencies to promote media democracy. Metro Media provided access to video equipment to many Vancouver producers. Between 1971 and 1974, Metro Media was responsible for over 500 hours of cable programming. It continued until 1983.
