With 60 years of India’s independence coming up in August, channels are busy formulating content to mark the occasion. NDTV 24x7 is one such channel which recently launched a new show titled ‘The Third Eye – India @ 60’.
The new show focuses on presenting India through a series of innovative episodes capturing the unprecedented journey of the nation through varied hues of chaos, success and loss. The first 10 episodes of this show will look at the transition of India from its rich history to where she stands at present.
Sonia Singh, Managing Editor, NDTV 24x7, said, “As a news channel, we observe the country from extremely close quarters. ‘The Third Eye- India @ 60’ will look at India which is vibrant and mature enough now to be able to reflect upon the challenges that the last 60 years have thrown up. The programme is a tribute to India’s enviable dynamism.”
The episodes of 20 minutes each will be anchored by Radhika Bordia and will follow a documentary style format. The programme airs on Thursdays at 9:30 pm and Sundays at 1:30 pm.
The first episode titled ‘River Sutra’ delved into how the river Narmada, once revered deeply for its holiness, has now become a melting pot of various political, legal and environmental controversies. The remaining episodes will take the viewers on a journey across the country bringing into limelight the collision and harmony between India’s present and its past.
