• BHUTAN: BHUTAN BROADCASTING SERVICE: 1ST TV TRANSMISSION

    English/Nat It must rate as one of the most unorthodox gifts from a ruling monarch to his people. To mark the silver jubilee of his rule in the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan, King Jigme Singye Wangchuck has opened up the Bhutanese sky to television transmission. For decades, the country has imposed a ban on television in a zealous bid to safeguard its cultural identity. Now, its people are free to watch transmissions from the local Bhutan Broadcasting Service. Bhutanese people gathered in eager anticipation for the historic first broadcast from their very own television station. The long awaited moment came nearly twenty minutes late due to teething problems at the transmission centre at the Bhutan Broadcasting Service in Thimpu. The broadcast began with a tribute to th...

  • Zubaida & TV in Bhutan (Cultural Geography videos)

    The first video show the story of Zubaida, a girl from Afghanistan who suffered from 3rd degree burns and needed a series of plastic surgeries to repair her damaged skin. Unable to stay and pay for the treatment, her parents are forced to return to Afghanistan, but in a gesture of kindness, Zubaida's chief plastic surgeon, Dr. Grossmann and his wife Rebecca, decide to adopt Zubaida for an entire year until she completes her full treatment. During this year in Beverly Hills, CA., Zubaida acquires the American culture and begins to feel like a true American girl. However, everybody knows that Zubaida must return to her parents in Afghanistan at some point, so she does reluctantly. This video is a good example of cultural assimilation. The second video show an example of cultural diffusion...

She arrived in Kathmandu, Nepal, days after the litigant chose to withdraw the case just as the verdict was ready to be announced. “Given a chance, I’d have loved to stay in Bhutan,” she says.

English/Nat It must rate as one of the most unorthodox gifts from a ruling monarch to his people. To mark the silver jubilee of his rule in the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan, King Jigme Singye Wangchuck has opened up the Bhutanese sky to television transmission. For decades, the country has imposed a ban on television in a zealous bid to safeguard its cultural identity. Now, its people are free to watch transmissions from the local Bhutan Broadcasting Service. Bhutanese people gathered in eager anticipation for the historic first broadcast from their very own television station. The long awaited moment came nearly twenty minutes late due to teething problems at the transmission centre at the Bhutan Broadcasting Service in Thimpu. The broadcast began with a tribute to the widely admired king . Bhutan is perhaps one of the last countries in the world to start beaming television programmes. The Bhutan TV broadcasting station was formally inaugurated by Queen Ashi Tshering Pem Wangchuck, one of the king's four wives. She said the move was well timed with the country's globalisation efforts and she hoped that the Bhutanese people would wisely guard against the negative influences television could bring to their homes. SOUNDBITE (English) "Here in Bhutan we are neither blind to its disadvantages nor oblivious to opportunities it has to offer. Having pursued for twenty five years a philosophy of development aimed at promoting gross national happiness through harmonious balance between spiritual and material growth, we know that the strong fabric of Bhutanese society can withstand and be enriched by the winds of change". SUPER CAPTION: Ashi Tshering Pem Wangchuck, Queen of Bhutan Bhutan has also opened up to internet and e-mail to connect its people to the information super highway. Before television was introduced formally, many Bhutanese violated the law by installing satellite dishes to beam in foreign TV channels. Private video shops renting Indian and Hollywood movies are also very popular in urban Bhutan. But most Bhutanese are looking forward to having their own television channel. Run by the Bhutan Broadcasting Service that operates the radio network services, the TV channel will telecast programs in the national Dzongkha language as well as English. SOUNDBITE (English) "I'm excited. As soon as I heard there is going to be a program, I switched on the television. I heard it was at 6.45, it came on at 7.00. I am quite excited." SUPER CAPTION: Thinley Dem, Student The Buddhist kingdom has opened its doors to change on its own terms and at its own pace. What the satellite invasion from the skies will do to the carefully preserved Bhutanese cultural identity remains to be seen. For now, the Bhutanese are hoping that the impending small screen revolution will blend with their spiritual traditions as they cautiously tread towards the end of their self-imposed isolation.

The first video show the story of Zubaida, a girl from Afghanistan who suffered from 3rd degree burns and needed a series of plastic surgeries to repair her damaged skin. Unable to stay and pay for the treatment, her parents are forced to return to Afghanistan, but in a gesture of kindness, Zubaida's chief plastic surgeon, Dr. Grossmann and his wife Rebecca, decide to adopt Zubaida for an entire year until she completes her full treatment. During this year in Beverly Hills, CA., Zubaida acquires the American culture and begins to feel like a true American girl. However, everybody knows that Zubaida must return to her parents in Afghanistan at some point, so she does reluctantly. This video is a good example of cultural assimilation. The second video show an example of cultural diffusion, as cable TV arrives in Bhutan, a pristine country in the middle of the Himalayas. As people in Bhutan begin to devote more of their free time to cable TV shows, their original culture begins to deteriorate. Over time, more and more people begin to follow foreign shows and imitate the culture from those countries--mostly the U.S. Some people in Bhutan are appalled to such cultural intrusion but their complaints fall on deaf ears.

TOURISM & TELEVISION: But in recent years things have begun to change. Tourism has become big business. People are leaving the countryside and the cities are growing. Most dramatically television has come to Bhutan, bringing with it 46 channels exposing people to advertising and programmes from all over the world. Consumerism is taking off. SOCIAL CHANGE: New fashions, pop music, mobile phones are appearing. Traditional dress is giving way to trendy T-shirts. Youth violence, drugs and AIDS have become significant problems. People are worried that young people are neglecting their Buddhist faith for computer games and Nike. How will the forces of globalisation affect this unique mountain kingdom? Will they be able to retain their happiness despite the forces of globalisation? EXTRAS: "The Other Face of Bhutan" Evicted from their homeland, about 107,000 Bhutanese are living in refugee camps in nearby Nepal - is this a case of ethnic cleansing?

International media reported on and saw the case as a test of Bhutan’s press freedom, but most of Zam’s journalist colleagues remained mum on the issue, apparently out of fear due to the association of the country’s highest judge in the suit. The case was withdrawn in January. “There’s an extremely high level of self-censorship,” Zam says. The journalist says she is excited about her new stint as the Deputy Editor with Onward Nepal, a media start-up, but also “a little sad.” Like her, many other young Bhutanese professionals are leaving the country, many of them moving to Australia and willing to take up even menial jobs.
