AIR, Bangalore bags 1st Prize for the best Children’s Programme









‘Circus Aane Nalli’ – a children’s programme produced at AIR, Bangalore has been declared as the Best Children’s Programme in the Akashvani Annual Awards Competition 2013. This opera was scripted by Smt.Sayilakshmi S, Programme Executive (Women’s Section) and jointly produced with Dr.N.Raghu, Programme Executive (Music). 

Smt.Indu Vishwanath, a Grade-I composer, had composed music which was rendered by the students of Sri Vani Vidya Kendra, Basaveshwaranagar, Bangalore. 

This is a simple lyrical narrative presented as a moral story of the pointless efforts of an elephant to gain virtual pleasures. The intention of this opera is to teach the value of maintaining one's individuality, by demonstrating the futility of borrowed ideas. The elephant becomes a metaphor of the bored urbanite trying unnecessary things to get the virtual happiness. This opera makes a subtle comment on inferiority complex. It projects the spirit of friendship to come over it.

DD's review committee to bring changes in programming, compete with private channels

A mobile application is to be introduced to ensure that people get Doordarshan news on the move, just as they are getting All India Radio news headlines via SMS.

This was decided by a Doordarshan High-level Review Committee in its meeting in Delhi. The meeting was held after the Committee was reconstituted. The new members are DD director-general Vijaya Laxmi Chhabra, DG (News) Archana Datta and additional directors-general Amit Shukla, Ranjan Mishra, Manoj Pandey, Mayank Aggarwal and S Mathias.

Even while denying that the move was the result of any directive from the Information and Broadcasting Ministry, a Prasar Bharati source told indiantelevision.com that the re-constitution of the committee was a normal process which takes place every time new officials come in.

The source said while the High-level Review Committee looks at all issues relating to programming, the High-level Coordination Committee looks at promotions or transfers etc.The source also said that the Review Committee constantly examines the programme content and makes or suggests changes where necessary.

The Review Committee also examined possible changes to make the programming slick so that it can compete with private channels.
