BBC World Service Funding Increases

BBC World Service will receive £70 million of extra funding from the UK Government for the three year period from 2008/2009 to 2010/2011.
The announcement was made by Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling during his Comprehensive Spending Review announcement in Parliament on Tuesday, October 9.
The announcement formally confirmed £15m per annum funding for a BBC news and information television channel in the Farsi (Persian) language for Iran which will be launched next year.
BBC World Service also received funding to enhance its forthcoming Arabic language television news and information channel.
The services in Arabic and Farsi will be the first television news services to be launched by the BBC in a decade and they will be the first television services to be publicly funded by Grant-in-aid from the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office.
The overall settlement also includes £1m per annum from 2009/10 to enhance BBC World Service’s multi-media operations in languages relevant to ethnic communities resident in the UK.
BBC World Service Director Nigel Chapman said: “As we mark the 75th birthday of the BBC’s service to the world this December, this settlement strengthens BBC World Service’s future as a multi-media provider of high quality independent and impartial news and information around the world."

BBC World Service celebrates 75 years of broadcasting



This year the BBC World Service celebrates 75 years of
broadcasting. In this audio archive, each of those years
will be looked at in a special one-minute-long programme,
based on our vast radio archive.
Presented by Helen Boaden, the BBC's Director of News,
the series will look at how mass communications have
changed the world, and how the world has changed the
media.
The series begins in 1932, with the rather downbeat
words of the BBC's founder, Lord Reith: "as to programmes
- don't expect too much in the early days... The programmes
will neither be very interesting nor very good."
It covers innovations in broadcasting and charts changing
styles in reporting.
But the highlights are those unforgettable moments from
radio and television that bring 20th century history to
life: the abdication speech of Edward VIII; the Hindenburg
airship going up in flames; the War of the Worlds panic
in the US; Charles de Gaulle speaking to the Free French
from the BBC in 1940; Churchill's famous speeches;
Hungarian Free Radio's last desperate call for help as
Russian tanks rolled into Budapest; the first man on the
moon.
And in amongst those well-known moments is some astonishing
radio, from propaganda jazz songs from World War II, to the
sound of Radio Mille Collines, the station whose hate-filled
broadcasts played such a key role in the horrific Rwandan
genocide in 1994.
This 75th anniversary has given the BBC World Service a
chance to look back at what has been achieved by
broadcasting over the years, to dig through its archives,
and to find some truly amazing gems.
Taken altogether, they provide an insight into not just
the history of broadcasting - but the history of the world.

News channel to go on All India Radio

Tuesday October 9 2007 12:09 IST

BHUBANESWAR: The battle for airwaves is beginning to get hotter.
For all the cut-throat competition between the TV news channels, the All India Radio is gearing up to set on air a dedicated news channel. The enthusiasm for the project is drawn from the report of the Audience Research Bureau under Prasar Bharati, which has termed the venture viable after carrying out an extensive survey across the country.
“Radio is still the most preferred medium for millions as far as news is concerned. We want to cash in on people’s trust and also propel the growing interest in radio,” Director-General (News) P K Bandopadhayaya said.
The channel is expected to go on air during the 11th Plan Period. He was speaking to this paper on sidelines of a ‘Reorientation programme for part-time correspondents’ here on Monday.
Figures state that there are about 35 crore radio listeners in the country at present. Bandopadhayaya said, localising news content would be the other focus area of the public broadcaster during the 11th Plan period.
“We have realised that people are more interested in local news and relate to them easily than what’s happening in distant lands. Hence the news programmes are being structured accordingly,” he said.
AIR might also increase the duration of news-based programmes after conducting a feasibility study. On improving reception quality, DRM technology would be introduced in all the centres to improve the quality of sound and avoid overlapping of sound waves.
The ‘news-on-phone’ service of AIR would also be extended to all the 44 regional news units, including Cuttack. The service has apparently gained immense popularity since it was launched four years back. In places like Kerala, the service receives 30,000 to 40,000 requests every day. Any one can dial 1258 (Hindi) or 1259 (English) to get the latest news over phone.
About allowing private FM stations to broadcast news content, he said quoting Information and Broadcasting Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi that a monitoring mechanism needs to be set up first before considering such a move.

Govt. bans Red FM for seven days

New Delhi, Oct. 3 (PTI): Terming the remarks of Red FM
radio jockey against the Gorkha community as "derogatory",
the Government has banned the radio channel for seven days.
"The remarks indeed hurt the sentiments of the Gorkha
(Nepali) community and the steps taken by them did not
help as the violence continued even after that. So we
decided to impose a ban of seven days on the channel," a
senior Information and Broadcasting ministry official said,
adding the order would be subject to the outcome of Telecom
Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal's hearing.
The ban would be subject to the outcome of the channel's
appeal against the showcause notice by the Ministry in the
TDSAT, which will take up the matter tomorrow.
The alleged derogatory remarks made by a radio jockey of
the channel on the winner of Indian Idol, Prashant Tamang,
had triggered clashes and violence in Siliguri last week.

All India Radio Vividh Bharati Service celebrates Golden Jubilee

All India Radio Vividh Bharati Service

The popular Vividh Bharati Service of All India Radio was
conceptualized to combat 'Radio Ceylon' in 1957. Within no time it
proved to be a popular channel of every household. The service
provides entertainment for nearly 15 to 17 hours a day. It presents a
mix of film music, skits, short plays and interactive programmes, Some
of the old popular programmes of Vividh Bharati are 'SANGEET SARITA',
'BHULE BISRE GEET', 'HAWA MAHAL', 'JAIMALA', 'INSE MILIYE', 'CHHAYA
GEET' ETC., are still distinctly recongnised by the listeners. From
time to time new programmes were introduced like 'BISCOPE KE BATEIN',
'SARGAM KE SITARE', 'CELLULOID KE SITARE', 'SEHATNAMA', &' HELLO
FARMAISH',.

All these programmes are produced centrally at Vividh Bharati
Service,Borivili, Mumbai and up-linked to the satellite. 40 Vividh
Bharati stations across the country down-linked these programmes
through captive earth stations provided at each of these AIR stations.
Some local programme windows are also provided at these stations to
give regional flavour to the listeners. These 40 Vividh Bharati
stations are known as Commercial Broadcasting Service Stations and are
located at all major and commercially vibrant cities covering 97% of
the Indian population. In 1999 Vividh Bharati Service proved its
success connecting Indian Soliders posted on remote border areas to
their family members through a special programme entitled "Hello
Kargil", through which not only the family members of the soliders ,
but even a layman including young and old conveyed their best wishes
to the soliders to keep up their morale. Eminent actors, play back
singers, renowned writers, lyricists, directors and music directors
have found way to express their experience and opinion through the
Vividh Bharati Platform . A special programme entitled "Ujaale Unki
Yaadon Ke" takes the listeners into the world of nostalgia dipping
into the memories of the artists of the yester years. With the advent
of new technology the transmission of programmes gradually migrated
from earlier medium wave transmission to high quality digital stereo
FM. Commercials were introduced initially in the Vividh Bharati
Service in the year 1967 on an experimental basis. Realising the role
of advertising in accelerating the social and material progress of the
country, commercials were extended to Primary channels including FM &
Local Radio Stations in a phased manner. Advertsing on Radio is not
only cost effective to the advertisers but also has the potential to
reach far flung areas where no other mass media has succeeded in
making any tangible dent.

Some of the popular programmes of Vividh Bharat can also be heard on
our National Channel from 2300 hrs. to 0600 hrs. This service now
enjoys global listenership through Direct to Home Service (DTH)
besides other 11 channels of All India Radio.

Vividh Bharati: Connecting a nation with music and memories for 50 yrs

Lekha Agarwal
Posted online: Wednesday, October 03, 2007 at 12:00:00

Mumbai, October 2 From the Jaisalmer border, soldiers have written to
us…they brave the scorching sun and hot winds to protect our borders.
In those trying climatic conditions, there is something else they
protect just as fiercely—their transistors. They will bake in the sun,
but keep their transistors in the shade because if that heats up, they
can't tune in to Vividh Bharati," said a proud Assistant Station
Director Mahendra Modi.
That's not surprising—for in 1999, at the peak of the Kargil War, it
was Vividh Bharati that connected soldiers with their families across
the country, through a special programme "Hello Kargil".
And it's a proud moment for Modi—he has been with the All India Radio
for four decades now—and his team at the Vividh Bharati Service in
Borivili as they gear up to celebrate Wednesday, the day this very
popular service of AIR completes 50 years. For, it is from this
building opposite the Gorai bus depot that programmes synonymous with
the radio channel—like 'Bhule Bisre Geet', 'Sangeet Sarita', 'Hawa
Mahal', 'Jaimala' etc—are centrally produced and uplinked to
satellite, to be dished out to 40 Vividh Bharati stations across the
country.
In Mumbai, a team led by Modi has been tirelessly working for the last
two months to ring in the golden jubilee celebrations. A string of
special programmes, each lasting two hours, has been planned through
the day. So, from 6 am on Wednesday, until 11 pm, listeners can get
