Doordarshan invite bids for cricket coverage in India

Doordarshan has sought bids from Indian and foreign production houses for live television production of cricket matches to be conducted under the aegis of the Board of Control for Cricket in India.

The successful bidder will have to provide a minimum of 17-camera coverage and provide a computer scoring system.

According to the Industry sources these conditions ensure that only the likes of WorldTel, BBC's Channel 4 and Kerry Packer's Channel 9, in addition to TWI, remain in the fray for the TV production rights.

The last date for submission of bids (pre-qualification and financial) is November 11, 2001. The pre-qualification bids shall be opened on the same day and qualified bidders will be announced.

Earlier Doordarshan had also invited bids from producers for programmes to be telecast on the new edutainment channel from the DD stable-DD Bharati-scheduled for launch on January 26, 2002.
