Laurent Imbault y GoodnessTV: Elevando al mundo – P1 de 2Parte 1
In this world there are thousands and thousands of people working to
make a difference, working to help other people regardless of creed,
religion, or political affiliation. And it is of those people that
Goodness TV wants to talk about.
HOST: Halo, kind viewers,
and welcome to today’s Good People, Good Works featuring the first in a
two-part series on Internet television station GoodnessTV which airs
inspirational programs on noble individuals and groups who are uplifting
our world through their sincere efforts to better humanity. The
station’s founder is Laurent Imbault, a noted Canadian actor and
Mr. Imbault starred in the Canadian television drama
『Watatatow,』 a long-running series that addressed important social
issues faced by youth. He has also appeared in films produced both in
Canada and the USA. What inspired Mr. Imbault to create GoodnessTV？
Surprisingly, he realized the need for such a station after speaking
with his elderly mother.
Laurent Imbault (m): My
mother, she’s now ９５ and three years ago she broke her hip and I spent a
lot of time at the hospital with her. We talked a lot. At some point
she said, 『You know, I’m happy I am going to die soon, and I am not
going to see all of this anymore.』 And I asked, "What are you talking
What is all of ‘this’？" And she said 『You know, all of this violence and all the bad news in the world.』 She
said, 『I am tired of seeing this; I don’t see that there is hope.』 And I
thought, "Wait a second, Mama.』 I said, "There’s hope." And then I
realized that we live in a world where we’re lacking positive input.
is no place where I can just relax and see good news, and think that
maybe we’re going to make it as a human race！ So I came back and I told
my wife, 『Why don’t we do something？ Why don’t we start a television
station of good news, only good news？』And it turned out that it was
easier to do it on the Internet.
So I met some young programmers
and I talked to them about the project, and everybody was really
enthusiastic, so we started Goodness TV.
