Shashi Shekhar Vempati, CEO, Prasar Bharati, will be the special guest on Governance Now’s Visionary Talk Series today. This talk series is hosted by Kailashnath Adhikari, MD, Governance Now.
Vempati will be speaking about the various new initiatives undertaken by Prasar Bharati and how Doordarshan is planning to leverage the phenomenal success of Ramayana and Mahabharata.
In a recent interview with a publication, Vempati had spoken about the decision to re-run the show and the imminent challenges they had to face. “The tapes were in the deep archive of the (Ramanand) Sagar family, and in Mumbai it was like operating in curfew. Someone had to physically retrieve these things. The formats had changed. People had to work through the night to figure out how to get it into a compatible format, and then push it from Bombay. Because the file sizes are so large, you can’t do it over the internet, it would have taken forever. So we had a satellite-based mechanism by which the content was beamed from Bombay and downloaded into servers here, so that the next day’s episodes could be aired,” he had shared.
