    Namgay Zam, the most well-known face on television in Bhutan, has left the country after an emotionally draining legal battle with an influential businessman, who had accused her of defamation due to her social media posting. 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. Zam, formerly a news anchor with Bhutan Broadcasting Service, had earlier alleged she was a victim of a “witch-hunt” started by Bhutan’s Chief Justice Tshering Wangchuk after she re-posted on social media an online petition written by a young doctor against the judge’s father-in-law, the petitioner in the defamation suit.

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.

Unsurprisingly, most people know very few facts about Bhutan. In fact, lots of experienced travelers aren't even sure where Bhutan is located! Although state-controlled tours are possible, Bhutan has deliberately remained closed off to protect old traditions. Despite being an impoverished country, only selective tourism is encouraged. The cost to visit Bhutan is set high, at least US $250 per day, perhaps to discourage influence from outside countries. Due to the cost, Bhutan was definitely spared from becoming another stop on the backpacker Banana Pancake Trail in Asia. Even television and internet access were banned until 1999! Where Is Bhutan? Surrounded by the Himalayas, Bhutan is a small country sandwiched between India and Tibet, just east of Nepal and north of Bangladesh. Bhutan is considered to be part of South Asia. Some Interesting Facts About Bhutan With only around 14,800 square miles (38,400 square kilometers) of territory, Bhutan is roughly half the size of South Carolina. The country is slightly smaller than Switzerland. Much of the terrain is made up of mountainous slopes. Druk Yul — the local name for Bhutan — means "Land of the Thunder Dragon." The dragon appears on the Bhutanese flag. In 2010, Bhutan became the first country in the world to ban the production and sales of tobacco products. Smoking in public areas is illegal, however, tobacco can be used in private. In 1916, the first King of Bhutan called tobacco "the most filthy and noxious herb." Violators are slapped with a harsh fine: the equivalent of over two months' salary. In a push to modernize, the King of Bhutan finally allowed television and internet access into the country in 1999. Bhutan was among the last countries in the world to adopt television. A few television channels are received from neighboring India. The king warned that misuse of television could corrupt their old traditions. Bhutan is the only country in the world to officially measure national happiness. The index is known as GNH (Gross National Happiness). Rather than placing emphasis on GDP, Bhutan attempts to track the happiness of its population. The United Nations bought into the idea in 2011 and released the World Happiness Report in 2012. The annual report uses Gallup data and ranks countries by factors such as social, health, and environmental wellness rather than just economic concerns. Despite a focus on internal happiness, the Bhutanese government has been accused of numerous human rights violations against the ethnic minorities living there; many were forced out of the country or into refugee camps. The United States accepted 30,870 Bhutanese refugees between 2008 and 2010. Bhutanese receive free education from the government. A heavy emphasis is placed on Buddhist teachings. Most schools have an English curriculum. Until education reform was passed in the 1990s, only around 30 percent of males and 10 percent of females in Bhutan were literate. Inheritance (land, house, and animals) is generally passed to the eldest daughter rather than the eldest son. A man often moves into the home of his new wife until he can "earn his keep." Bhutanese are forbidden to marry foreigners. Homosexuality is also forbidden by law. Polygamy is legal in Bhutan, however, the practice is not common. The national sport of Bhutan is archery. Basketball and cricket are also gaining popularity. The state religion of Bhutan is Vajrayana Buddhism. Vajrayana follows tantric Buddhist texts. Health, Military, and Politics Bhutan is squeezed directly between two world superpowers who often clash politically: China and India. Bhutan controls many key mountain passes between the two countries. Although basic healthcare is free in Bhutan, the country suffers from a serious shortage of doctors. In 2007, the physician density was one doctor per 50,000 people. In contrast, the United States has around 133 doctors per 50,000 residents. The average life expectancy in Bhutan is 69.8 years per the World Health Organization's 2015 data. Traveling to Bhutan Bhutan is one of the most closed countries in Asia. Visiting as an independent traveler is pretty much impossible — an official tour is compulsory. Although Bhutan no longer restricts the number of tourists per year as they once did, exploring the country can be expensive. To receive a travel visa, all visitors to Bhutan must book through a government-approved tour agency and pay the full price of the trip before arrival. The full amount of your stay is wired to the Tourism Council of Bhutan in advance; they then pay the tour operator which arranges your hotels and itinerary. Foreign travelers get very little choice of where to stay or what to do. Some Bhutanese claim that foreign visitors are shown only what the government wants them to see. Tours are censored to maintain a false image of internal happiness. The visa and tour agency fees to visit Bhutan average more than US $250 per day

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. Bhutan appears to be experiencing a brain drain. The Diplomat visited Zam in Kathmandu to speak to her about her decision to leave Bhutan. Read more at: http://thediplomat.com

It also features many other celebrities, including Drew Barrymore, Redman, Jessica Alba, Eva Mendes, Mark Hoppus and Justin Timberlake. On the show, said celebrities visit various ecological locales around the world including the Kingdom of Bhutan More Information: Hollywood has long been known as a place where superstars live the wild life. Now WWF is introducing some of those stars to wildlife of a different kind. WWF teamed up with MTV to bring a few of Tinseltown's brightest stars from the Hollywood Hills to the Eastern Himalayas, where our conservation work is saving endangered species and their habitats, and making a difference in the lives of local people. In the first two episodes of MTV's reality show 'Trippin', WWF's late Mingma Sherpa takes actress Cameron Diaz and her famous friends on a wild ride across Nepal and Bhutan. The first episode is their trip to Nepal. In the second episode they move on to Bhutan's famed Phobjicka Valley where they see the rare and endangered black-necked cranes, help rebuild an ancient Buddhist monastery and even take part in an archery contest. 'Trippin' is designed to highlight - in MTV's typical offbeat, irreverent style - environmental challenges and success stories from around the world. WWF also works closely with the government of Bhutan to ensure that this tiny Himalayan kingdom's 72% forest cover remains intact to provide a home for its spectacular wildlife and resources for its citizens.

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.
