Over eleven months ago today, then-micronational entrepreneur and Quetico Street superintendent Henry Clement announced plans to produce a micronational television program under the Twain Project Banner, entitled the Micronation Report with Henry Twain.
The concept – drawing inspiration from past projects such as RadioMicro – was received well. In the absence of RadioMicro many micronationalists looked forward to seeing a replacement for the critically acclaimed radio broadcast.
For the fledgling show’s premier, interviews with Mercian MPs Brandon Wu and John Churchill were planned, in addition to an exclusive interview with Mcarthian President Kit McCarthy.
The script for the premier was written and recording nearly completed when the Micronation Report met its ill-fate. The Wu/Churchill interview was scrapped after requests from the subjects and the McCarthy interview never happened – the project slowly died.
Occasionally the Micronation Report is jokingly or sarcastically mentioned by a member of the micronational community, but for the past year nothing has transpired beyond the initial drive.
Now Lord of the Essian Commonwealth (once again), Henry Clement has moved much farther beyond his past achievements with Quetico Street, racking up titles such as Chair of the Micronational Economic Group, MicroWiki Administrator, and Acting Chair of the Grand Unified Micronational.
In a series of Essian cultural initiatives, Clement – on behalf of private enterprise Sandwich Corps – has announced intentions to salvage the Micronation Report and complete the premier under a new working title.
The show, now titled Clement!, will be distributed by Sandwich TV and will feature news, music, interviews, and more, according to a press release by Sandwich Corps.
The Essian Ministry of the Treasury has confirmed that the rights to the Micronation Report’s scripts, recordings, and branding have been purchased by Sandwich Corps, though no amount for the purchase has been provided.
No schedule has been released for the show as of press time.
