Indian Game shows feature prominently in Asian Television Awards 2002 nomination

Out of the five nominations at the Asian Television awards 2002 for the Best Game Show, three are Indian. The nomination includes 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' (Star Plus), 'Bournvita Quiz Contest' and 'Khelo Number Khelo' (Zee TV), followed by 'Reality Bites' and 'Witness' for the Best Current Affairs Programme.

This year, for the nomination, around 1,300 entries have been received from 14 countries. In addition to Japan and China, the countries that participated this year include Japan, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, India, South Korea and Singapore.

More than 115 programmes and performances from 12 countries have been nominated for awards in the seventh annual regional Asian Television Awards. The winners will be announced at a live televised ceremony in Singapore on December 4, 2002. The show will be aired on leading television channels in 11 countries across the region.

The nomination category includes Best Documentary Programme, Best Wildlife Programme, Best News Programme, Best Current Affairs Programme, Best Drama Series Best Entertainment Special, Best News Special, Best Sports Programme, Best Talkshow Best Current Affairs Presenter and Best Light Entertainment Presenter.

The Star News Hour is one of the nominations among the Best News programme. Likewise, Reality Bites: Mental Health in Kashmir and Witness (Star TV) are among the Best Current Affairs Programme. HardTalk Pakistan (BBC) for the category of India Best Talkshow. Sports Tonight (Star TV) for the Best Sports Programme, Karan Thapar Infotainment Television and Niret Alva Miditech (BBC) for Best Current Affairs Programme Presenter and Sonu Nigam(Star TV) for the Best Light Entertainment Presenter.

Among the notable trends this year were the increase in the number of interactive programmes entered as well as a marked rise in the number of documentaries put forward by broadcasters and production houses from across the region. Music and variety shows were also more lavish than in previous years, with many more high-budget contenders.

Says Asian Television Awards Chairman of Judges, Jonathan Hallett, "The growing focus on interactivity is part of a global trend towards developing new and varied ways of relating with television audiences. He further adds, "In this, Asia takes its place with the rest of the world. As economies improve and Asia continues its migration to digital platforms, we expect interactive applications to become a prominent part of the Awards."

The ranges of topics addressed in many categories are also controversial. The issues include homosexuality, mental illness, child abuse, domestic violence, and dealing with poverty in old age. Says Hallet, "The issues indicate a significant increase in Asian stations willingness to address and deal with sensitive topics in a variety of ways."

The awards are sponsored by Sony, Bloomberg Television, Leitch and Freemantle Media. Television Asia is the organizer of the event.
