Yaounde, Cameroon Africa.( Cameroon News) – Television-Cameroon: CRTV is gearing up to start off a whole lot of fresh programmes.
Cameroon Radio and Television Corporation is getting ready to start new programmes. The General Manager of CRTV yesterday revealed that the state TV would be starting of a number of “must watch” productions. It looks as though the Cameroon Radio and Television Corporation (CRTV), which is generally referred to as the “heart of the nation” is gearing up to keep its audiences glued to their TV set as they get ready with a whole lot of programmes that will alter the face of the channel. The revelations made by the top brass of CRTV indicate that the programs would be custom made to meet the audience’s desires. The General Manager (GM) of CRTV, Amadou Vamoulke was announcing the inauguration of the new programme season of his corporation for this year on May 7, in Maroua in a lunch that was arranged for the press in Yaounde yesterday.
According to Amadou Vamoulke, the changes in the programmes will not involve just some minor changes in the names, but will see a whole new approach and a radical change of content. The headings of many of the programmes may create the impression of “déja entendu” but the GM opines that there is more to decipher. This is applicable mostly because the changed programmes will see a major makeover especially as the new programmes will be of improved standards directed towards satisfying the hunger of the Cameroonian as well as the global population on news, entertainment and sports.
At the press conference, Amadou Vamoulke stated that the new programme season is not just a chance for CRTV’s audience to familiarize themselves with the new vision of the corporation. The new vision upholds service, while also giving due consideration to the hopes of Cameroonians ,by providing each citizen the notion, that he/she is important to the cause of nation building, through programmes which will help them to be one with their cultures and traditions.
In between the live TV show in Maroua, on May 7, to commemorate the flag off of the new programme season, the audience will be given a taste of the changes which will end with CRTV as a meeting point, where the cultural values and traditions of Cameroonians from all walks of life are given equal importance.
Some of the new radio programmes are “Que dit la loi?” “Les chemins de la foi”, “Espace International”, “Cameroon Yesterday and Today”, “Kids Forum” and “Regard”. Rumors are that “Que dit la Loi” will be entirely changed from how it used to be previously with the title “Le point du Droit”. “
Cameroon Yesterday and Today” will go beyond sensitizing the local population about their roots and where they are going to, to providing the audience the civic education they are on the lookout for. “Kids Forum” is a programme for children that will be conceptualized and presented by children. In additional to these there are also plans to start around 10 programmes.
Soap opera lovers will no longer require depending on foreign channels to view “TINSEL”, a famous soap opera in West and South Africa. CRTV will now start broadcasting TINSEL to viewers. It movie time on Fridays as Friday nights would be totally dedicated to movies.
There will also be a brand new sports magazine: “Fields of Passion”, TV games such as “Quiz Code, “Brain Box” and documentaries such as “Icones” or “This is My Story”. With all these brand new programmes, and a total makeover, CRTV is looking into getting their place in the hearts of Cameroonians by putting in place of a television revolution.
