I’m really very impressed by what is ongoing here. The fact of the new offices and new technologies, it really symbolizes the undergoing process of development, – EBU Head of Radio Graham Dixon made the regarding statement.
The representatives of European Broadcasting Union (EBU) – Head of Member Relations for Eastern Europe Radka Betcheva and EBU Head of Radio Graham Dixon have held meetings with the Management of the First Channel of GPB and the members of Board of Trustees of Georgian Public Broadcaster today.
As Graham Dixon remarked, the shows “Farm” and “Bookshelf” especially impressed him.
“I’m really very impressed by what is ongoing here. The fact of the new offices and new technologies, it really symbolizes the undergoing process of development. But of course, it is not just about offices and computers, but it’s actually your programs you have launched, I’m very impressed, particularly by two of them: “Farming” which actually is opening up an area to a wide audience, making that of broad interest. The same about “Bookshelf”, which actually is taking away it from a being an elite thing, discussing books in a very public way. That is absolutely at the heart of public broadcasting, as remit of public broadcaster is to serve the public. Next week when you will launch the channels for the minorities in radio, I’m very existed about that as well; giving a voice, hearing different opinion that’s what public radio is about”, – Graham Dixon said.
Georgian Public Broadcaster is a member of the European Broadcasting Union since 2005 and is actively cooperating with the organisation and its member media outlets.
The visit of the representatives of European Broadcasting Union (EBU) has started today and will end on April 24.
