BBC Burmese programmes coming to Myanmar Radio


BBC Burmese radio programmes will be rebroadcast by Myanmar’s state broadcaster Myanmar Radio, it has been learned.
Three programmes are set to be picked up by Myanmar Radio including the BBC Burmese youth show Mobigeno, the technology and digital innovations programme Cool Tech and the farming programme San Thit Tehtwin Lai Myay Ta Kwin. The programmes will be aired on FM, medium and shortwave signals.
The BBC’s Burmese Editor Tin Htar Swe said of the development “Our collaboration with Myanmar Radio means that now, for the first time for BBC Burmese in Myanmar, our content will be available via a state broadcaster.
In addition to medium and shortwave availability, airing these programmes on FM will help us capture a new radio audience which will include a lot of young people who listen to FM on their mobile phones.  This is great news for the BBC in Myanmar, further reinforcing our multiplatform presence in Myanmar.”
The BBC Burmese 10-minute bi-weekly programmes will be re-broadcast by Myanmar Radio and repeated the following week.
