Romania’s National Council of Audiovisual (CNA) has approved an audiovisual licence via satellite to SC Centrum Consulting SRL Targu Jiu (southern Romania), to open an ethnic minority-focused TV channel Bah TV.
The new channel will broadcast nationwide, with its main target to be the elimination of all divergences between the ethnic groups, not necessarily between Romanians and the other ethnic groups, but among minorities as well.
Programme manager Horia Enasel said: “Based on a well-directed programme we could manage to help the different ethnic groups solve their issues with each other. We will have special broadcasts dedicated to various minorities in our TV programme. The channel’s language will be Romanian.’ Mr Enasel added that adding that ‘Bah’ means ‘good luck’ in the Romany language.
The new tv channel’s studios will be located in Romania’s capital city, Bucharest. Start of actual broadcasting is expected to take place in December.
