  • & to Alan Fountain (1946-2016) who commissioned Satellite Dreaming and the whole 'Channels of Resistance' series, for Channel 4 in 1990

Satellite Dreaming Revisited was developed at Goldsmiths - University of London, by Tony Dowmunt, in collaboration with Nicolas Lee and others at CAAMA Productions in Alice Springs. You can read Tony's account of its development here.

The project was funded by an Emeritus Fellowship awarded to Tony Dowmunt by the Leverhulme Trust.

This site can only give a partial and limited picture of the issues raised in Satellite Dreaming, and so it probably excludes many relevant and important points of view, debates and examples of work.

We are keen to add contributions to the Essays pages, and new information, references and links to the Sources pages; we would also be happy to include more biographies and interviews on the People pages.

If you are interested in contributing to the site in any of these ways, or making any comments or corrections, please email us at
