On Monday, December 15th Ted Alexiades was awarded the Patriot Award at Hingham’s Town Hall. The Patriot Award, which is the first award in the ESGR series (Employer Support of The Guard and Reserve), “recognizes supervisors and bosses nominated by a Guardsman or Reservist employee for support provided directly to the nominator.” (ESGR)
Ted was nominated by Keith German who will be the town’s Veteran’s service officer in the new year. HCAM-TV was at town hall this morning and filmed the event, which can be viewed on our youtube page.
Tune in tonight at 7:00pm for a night of holiday goodness! Premiering first is our special Holiday Extravaganza featuring holiday greetings from dozens of Hingham residents and beautiful performances from various groups and organizations! Then at 7:30pm tune in for the Christmas In The Square concert special followed by our Holiday Classic Movie at 9:30pm. You can catch all of these premieres on our public channels (Comcast 97, Verizon 31).
Speaking of our holiday movie, premiering tonight on HCAM-TV is the classic 1935 hit, Scrooge. No if you’ve never seen Scrooge, this film tells the story of “Ebenezer Scrooge, the ultimate Victorian miser, who hasn’t a good word for Christmas, though his impoverished clerk Cratchit and nephew Fred are full of holiday spirit. But in the night, Scrooge is visited by spirits of another color.” We only have two more movies left in our Classic Movie Friday Nights In series. Our final film will air Friday, December 21st. Visit our program guide for playback information.
Congratulations to our December Member In Action, Mark Brodie. Mark has worked on a number of productions with HCAM including Rolling Thunder, A Bare Cove Park short, and Point and Shoot. Mark is currently working on his very first documentary, CactiBlue. CactiBlue is the first Vietnam Era Serviceman from Hingham killed in Vietnam.
HCAM Membership & Outreach Coordinator Cristina Aiello had a chance to chat with Mark and ask him about his experience with HCAM-TV thus far.
Mark has been involved with HCAM-TV for about a year and a half. He said “I had always wanted to work on a documentary but didn’t have access to the video and editing equipment I’d need or have the technical assistance required to pull it all together.
When he was asked about what he enjoys most about being an HCAM member he said, “I’ve made some great friends from a spectrum of different generations while also getting to work with kindred spirits that all want to use broadcast media as a means to communicate with the greater community. My association with HCAM has also helped me professionally as I now apply the skills I’ve gained from HCAM regarding video production, in my full time job as a VP Marketing for a software firm.”
Mark is currently working on his documentary CactiBlue.

Hingham’s Educational Access Channel is currently unavailable as some upgrades are performed. As you may have read about back in July HCAM’s Public & Government channels were moved onto a new playback Telvue System still housed in Hingham’s Town Hall. This same upgrade is now also taking place for the educational channel. In the past Hingham’s Educational channel has originated from Hingham High School, but programming will now be managed from a more central location in Hingham Town Hall. This will allow for easier maintenance and additional programming from other sources throughout town. This brief outage is occurring while new cables are being run to provide this new connectivity. We appreciate your patience during this process and promise an improved experience upon completion. In the mean time we invite you to tune into HCAM’s public channel (Comcast 97, Verizon 31) for the content you would usually see on the educational channel. For up-to-date playback times please see our Program Guide.
Good Afternoon and Happy Friday! It’s time to reveal our pick for Classic Movie Friday Nights In! Tonight’s pick is The General (1926) starring Buster Keaton, Marion Mack, and Glen Cavender.
“When Union spies steal an engineer’s beloved locomotive, he pursues it single handedly and straight through enemy lines.”
Make sure to tune in at 8:00pm with an encore at 11:00pm on our public channels (Comcast 97 Verizon 31)
