Welcome to the RegularCapital Audiovisual Research Wiki!
Hi, I'm RegularCapital (or RC for short), I created this wiki as a central place for all the miscellaneous audiovisual media research I have conducted over the last ten years or so, including the history of various television channels (especially but not just kids channels such as Cartoon Network, which is my main focus, along with Disney and Nickelodeon), rebrands and streaming services. I have also done research for TV Ark and many people in the TV presentation community follow me on Twitter, including TV Live, UK Pres and Transdiffusion, along with some people who work in the media industry. I hope this wiki will be a useful resource for those who are interested in media.
I am known for running an Unofficial Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics News Twitter account, Facebook page and YouTube channel. RegularCapital is an unofficial news source and aggregator that covers kids and young adults TV programming and movie news from Warner Bros.'s GKYAC (Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics) division, one of the largest producers, broadcasters, and distributors of kids and young adult entertainment in the world, which primarily focuses on animation, plus one of the largest classic movie archives in the industry. Popular Warner Bros. GKYAC brands include Cartoon Network, Warner Bros. Animation (which includes DC Comics animated productions), Adult Swim, HBO Max (Family), Boomerang, Boing, Cartoonito, Pogo, Tooncast and TCM (Turner Classic Movies).
