In episode 508 of #CutTheClutter, ThePrint’s Editor-in-Chief Shekhar Gupta said Prasar Bharati’s threat to the PTI over its reportage is outrageous, wrong and unfair.
The move by Prasar Bharati comes following a demand from people for a re-run of Ramanand Sagar's Shri Krishna, which was first aired in 1996 on Doordarshan.
Govt official says both All India Radio and Doordarshan are keeping people informed about Covid-19 developments.
Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan, which was a rage in the late 1980s, has made a comeback at a time when the 21-day lockdown has forced people indoors.
Doordarshan began the requisitioning process for these shows much before the lockdown. But it decided to re-telecast them now in ‘national interest’.
Prasar Bharati CEO Shashi Shekhar has said the public service broadcaster was 'working' with 'rights holders' to air the mythological series.
AIR has been broadcasting programmes with doctors, while informative COVID-19 videos have been set as default on DD Free Dish channels.
