Activist wants to start a station to promote Fairtrade


Bob Geldof is starting a TV channel which is aimed at saving the world.

The man who was the driving force behind Live Aid and Live 8 wants the channel to promote global peace.

Sources close to Bob, 52, say he hopes to have the yet-as-unnamed station on air before the end of the year.

One insider told the Daily Star: ‘It will be like a Fairtrade telly channel encouraging the West to help the poorer nations, hopefully in an entertaining way.’
