India centric shows to get BBC primetime again

BBC plans to reintroduce the 10 p.m. slot for Indian programming beginning of 2002. The events of September 11 caught most television channels by surprise. Several shows were cancelled to increase the news programming.

BBC World’s South Asia used to broadcast India-specific programming at 10 p.m. every night. The programmes included Hospital, Mastermind India, Wheels, Hard Talk India and Question Time India. Out of these shows only Question Time India, produced by NDTV, is currently on the air.

According to Narendhra Morar, commissioning editor, regions, BBC World, BBC plans to reintroduce the 10 p.m. slot for Indian programming beginning 2002. Programmes that were cut midseason like Mastermind India, produced by Synergy Communications, will be retelecast in their entirety.
