Despite TV was founded by Mark Saunders in 1982. The group operated out of the Tower Hamlets Arts Project on Whitechapel Road East London.
Despite TV produced video magazines concentrating on local issues which at the time included the transformation of Brick Lane from a National Front stronghold to the Bengali street we know today. The London Docklands Development Agency's take over of the old docks to turn it into an annex of the City. Despite TV also covered the year long Wapping Dispute in its first single issue magazine Despite the Sun.
