AIR’s revamp strategy

Public radio broadcaster All India Radio (AIR) has been facing challenging times due to the stiff competition by private FM broadcasters across the country. In contrast to the private FM operators, AIR has been faced with complaints of poor transmission, lack of reach and of innovative content. It is for this reason that the radio pubcaster has taken it upon itself to improve the quality of content and make the best of the resources it already has. With presence all over India, AIR is looking to design new content for its Urdu audiences, which a senior official terms as a big catchment area for AIR. The radio pubcaster has not been able to monetise that aspect and now plans to build that space by developing a sponsor base and by launching interactive content within the next few months. A well-placed source with the pubcaster tells that AIR will soon foray into print publication by launching a magazine, which will also be available in electronic format on its portal. Slated to launch in the next two months, the magazine will feature information about music, dance, drama, health and tourism from across the country. However, the print edition will have a specific target audience and will be available across airport lounges around the world. A senior AIR official reveals, “We are in talks and are getting into an arrangement with the Ministry of External Affairs and Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs for the magazine to be available in the respective consulates as well. The magazine will be free of cost and we intend to monetise it through advertisements from sponsors and are presently in talks with them.” Another area where AIR is looking to build its presence is the web, including social media. Therefore, it is also redesigning its portal in order to form two-way communication to earn ad revenues. AIR recently took a step in that direction by launching AIR News on SoundCloud. Users can now download and listen to latest AIR news and news-based programmes for free. Archival speeches by Jawaharlal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi are also being made available on this platform. The move aims to engage 200 million potential listeners on SoundCloud. Within a week of its launch, there have been over 12,000 plays. On average, it is getting 2,000–3,000 plays per day. AIR News DG Archana Dutta says, “We are still discussing if the archival speeches should be charged or made freely available. Our aim is to expand the reach on social media as it takes no extra cost and we can catch the interest of young listeners as well.” In the last one year, the news services division of AIR has taken several initiatives to make its presence felt on social media platforms. Its Facebook page, All India Radio News, has close to one million followers; its Twitter handle has about two lakh followers. On Facebook, the pubcaster also posts the top 10 news of the day following the 9 pm bulletin so that the youth can access news on the go. According to another senior AIR News official, the move is in preparation for the competition that will hit the pubcaster following the FM Phase III auctions. Other initiatives by AIR to improve its quality of content include the broadcast of a BBC-branded preview programme as well as of daily reports separately in Hindi and English on the 2014 Wimbledon Championships. It presents the preview report in Hindi on FM Gold Network at 7 am and in English on FM Rainbow at 7:15 am. To be broadcast till 7 July 2014, the report will also be relayed on one of its primary channels by AIR Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Guwahati, Jalandhar and Radio Kashmir, Srinagar either in Hindi or in English. Currently, AIR is also carrying special programmes on the ongoing Fifa World Cup. It is broadcasting live English commentary provided by the BBC till 14 July. Broadcast by AIR Delhi, the programme is relayed by all multi-channel AIR stations on one of their primary channels, all FM Rainbow channels and the AIR national channel. Moreover, the radio pubcaster is airing a special programme on the Fifa World Cup 2014 daily at 7:30 am on its national hook-up and FM Rainbow network. In response to recent reports of a large number of RJs being laid off, AIR officials said that FM Rainbow and FM Gold do not have sanctioned posts of announcers and that the RJs concerned left because their contracts with the broadcaster were over. “AIR, like any other established broadcasting organisation, is professionally bound to review, recast and recreate the panel of casual jockeys every year to bring in fresh talent and break monotony,” an official explains. AIR is planning to create shorter panels of RJs and western music presenters on temporary contracts to further professionalise the services and make such engagements cost effective at a time when the organisation is devising ways and means of enhancing its revenues and of curtailing expenditure.

DD to broadcast award winning docu-film on child trafficking

'Not my life', a globally acclaimed documentary on modern day slavery directed by Oscar nominee Robert Bilheimer, is set be aired on Doordarshan. The film, which addresses various forms of slavery like the military use of children in Uganda, involuntary servitude in the US, forced begging and garbage picking in India, sex trafficking in Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia, as well as other kinds of child abuse, was released in America in 2011.

Filmed in five continents, in a dozen countries, over a period of more than four years, 'Not My Life' has been specially edited for broadcast and distribution in India, and is a co-production of Worldwide Documentaries and Riverbank Studios in New Delhi.

"For those who watch, and we hope millions do, 'Not My Life' is both an eye-opener and a profoundly moving call to action. We here at DD are proud to be a launching pad for what we all hope will be a sustained awareness effort throughout our country in the years to come," Doordarshan Director General, Tripurari Sharan said at a screening here late last evening. "From DD's point of view, the June 29th broadcast is an opportunity to bring the national and international tragedy of human trafficking and modern slavery to the attention of our huge audience," Sharan said.

'Not my Life' was named Best World Documentary at the Harlem International Film Festival in September 2012 and was also supported by the CNN Freedom Project. "Every eight minutes a child goes missing in India. These children don't just disappear into thin air, they become slaves. They work in factories and in brothels, in agriculture and stone quarries, they make bindis and cigarettes, and they number in millions," Kailash Satyarthi, founder Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA), an NGO working against child labour said. He pointed out, "We are in denial about the reality of child slavery and human trafficking not only in India, but around the world. Satyarthi, is among the 50 people interviewed in the documentary. Others include investigative journalist Paul Radu of Bucharest, Katherine Chon of the Polaris Project, Somaly Mam of the Somaly Mam Foundation, Don Brewster of Agape International Mission and Cinematographer Richard Young.

The docu film translated into Hindi, is scheduled to air on Doordarshan (DD) National, the country's public television network, on June 29th in its "featured film" 9:30 - 10:30 pm time slot.

Be in the world Just dont watch it 
BBC Creates Experimental Oculus Rift Virtual Reality News Broadcast (video)
The BBC has today unveiled a new experimental virtual reality news broadcast they have created which uses the awesome Oculus Rift headset, that was recently purchased by Facebook for a cool $2 billion.
The BBC experiment uses a 360 degree camera set up, that was used to film the BBC newsroom, liveediting gallery and Fiona Bruce in the studio all at once.

The three were then all stitched together to create an immersive environment for users to view using the Oculus Rift. The BBC explains a little more:

“Imagine if you could watch a nature documentary and feel as if you could reach out and touch the animals, or feel as if you were on stage with a band during a music festival or on the pitch during afootball match.

The purpose of this trial was to test out the technology and see if we could make our users feel as if they were actually there in person, part of a programme and able to experience what it feels like to be behind the scenes during a news broadcast, in the studio sitting in front of a newsreader whilst they are on-air and in the centre of our bustling London newsroom.”

If you are one of the lucky ones and already own an Oculus Rift developer kit, you can download the experience yourself on MAC or PC. For more information on the new BBC virtual reality experiment jump over to the BBC Blog website for details.

आकाशवाणी का आज जो हम समृद्ध सांस्कृतिक—साहित्यिक और सांगितिक रूप देखते हैं इसे बनाने में हमारी कई पीढ़िया अपना सर्वस्व होम कर चुकी हैं । ये वो लोग रहे हैं जिनके लिए आकाशवाणी ही अपना सबकुछ रहा है उन्होने दुनिया की चकाचौंध को ठुकराकर केवल आकाशवाणी को ही अपना सबकुछ अर्पण कर दिया ।
अब हमारा भी दायित्व है कि हम हमारे ऐसे पुरोधाओं को याद करते रहें उनके कार्यों को, कार्यक्रमों को सुनते और सुनाते रहें ताकि हम और हमारी आने वाली पीढ़ी साहित्य—संगीत—संस्कृति की इस धरोहर को सुन—समझ कर इसमें और वृद्धि कर सके । ऐसे ही एक पुरोधा रहे हैं आकाशवाणी इन्दौर के श्री स्वतंत्रकुमार ओझा..
आकाशवाणी इन्दौर को पहचान देने में कई दिग्गज लोगों के नाम हवाओं में गूंजते हैं उन सब नामों में एक नाम प्रमुखता से उभरकर आता है जो कि आकाशवाणी के पहले एनांउसमेंट से जुड़ा रहा है वो हैं स्वर्गीय स्वतंत्रकुमार ओझा.......
आकाशवाणी पूर्व उपनिदेशक श्री एस के ओझा की आज दूसरी पुण्यतिथि है । श्री ओझा ने आकाशवाणी इन्दौर में संगीत और नाटक के क्षेत्र में  जो कार्य किए है वे अनुकरणीय हैं । आज से 2 वर्ष पूर्व एक कार की टक्कर से अचेतन हुए श्री ओझा वापस इस चेतन दुनिया में नहीं लौटे । अपनी मृत्यु से कुछ दिन पूर्व तक वे आकाशवाणी इन्दौर में हमारे मनुहार पर अपनी (आॅटो) रेडियोबायोग्राफी रेकार्ड करवाने संबंधी डिस्कसन करने आते रहे थे । श्री एस एन सोलंकी, श्री एस के व्यास इस कार्य को जल्दी करवाना चाहते थे पर ओझा साहब बारिश में यह कार्य करवाना चाहते थे । इस दौरान वे मुझे अपने लडकपन के बहुत से किस्से सुनाया करते थे जिसमें उनके सहभागी हुआ करते थे फिल्म स्टॉर सलमान खान के पिताश्री सलीम खान । कॉलेज टाईम के कई सारे किस्से फिर कभी.. आज तो ओझा साहब के संगीत और नाटकों की बातें...
1957 में आकाशवाणी इन्दौर में उद्घोषक के रूप में अपने सेवाकाल की शुरूआत करने वाले स्वतंत्र कुमार ओझा वैसे तो आकाशवाणी इन्दौर के प्रांरभ से ही केज्युअल के रूप में जुड गये थे ।
