    Sri Lanka TV Review: Malini Govinnage

    DRAMA: Horu (Burglars) and Heluven (In Nude) make you laugh. You laugh cracking off the inhibitions crusted around your bourgeois decency. First, a merciless laughter at the fidelity of the 'decent' society around you. Second, the nudity of the powerful in society who, at some stage of life, are forced to cover themselves with the 'clothes of decency' of the lesser folks in society.

    The two Sinhala plays are the translations of the plays 'The Virtuous Burglar' and "One Was Nude and One wore Tails" by Dario Fo, the leading radical dramatist in Europe. The Italian playwright who has so far produced more than 70 plays uses laughter to open people's eyes to injustices and maladies in society.

    Prasanna Vithanage's two Sinhala plays are a welcome treat to theatre lovers. The Virtuous Burglar comes on stage as Horu (the burglars).

    Sri Lanka TV

    BY A. G. Piyadasa

    INDEPENDENT Television Network (ITN) became the first Sri Lankan television channel to launch Satellite Digital Video Broadcast (DVB-S) Direct To Home (DTH).

    Sampath Bank CEO, Anil Amarasuriya and People’s Leasing Co. Ltd. CEO, D. P. Kumarage exchanging the agreements at the signing ceremony.

    "Television was introduced to Sri Lanka by ITN, 26 years ago and there are around 10 TV channels, now in operation but there is not a single TV channel possessing the digital technology," said Chairman, ITN, Newton Gooneratne.

    "When most of the countries transform its analog transmission system to digital technology, it is a pity that we haven't taken any significant step forward, towards this direction.

    That is primarily due to non availability of required funds," he said. "Another important benefit that we will gain is that ITN will be able to cover the entire island via CBNSat .

    The present situation is that although there are nearly 10 TV channels, there is not a single TV channel which is having its entire transmission beamed to the North and East.

    Not only North and East but there are shadow areas in other parts also which are not receiving strong signals due to geographic locations prevailing in our country.

    With the introduction of ITN programmes via CBNSat it will remedy all such drawbacks and enhance viewing opportunity to the entire country," he said.

    Last May, Communiq Broadband Network (Pvt) Ltd under its brand name CBNSat launched the first digital Video Broadcasting on Satellite Direct to home in Sri Lanka.

    "We launched the platform with world renowned broadcasters, the most wanted and most acclaimed international channels to the Sri Lanka audience," said CEO, CBN, Muhuntan Canagey.

    The technology, broke the barriers of reach, video and audio quality, and the ability to use spectrum (normally known to people as frequency) in the most efficient manner.

    "This was truly a ground-breaking event in the history of Sri Lanka's broadcast industry," he said.

    ITN viewers will also be able to enjoy an array of channels available through Sri Lanka's first ever Satellite TV broadcaster. Channels such as Discovery, CNN, BBC, Pogo, Cartoon Network, MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon, Raj, Raj Digital, Animal Planet, The History Channel, National Geographic Channel, AI, AXN, Animax, Fashion TV, Reality TV, SET, Zoom, Goal TV1 and Goal TV2 will be available to all the viewers of CBNSat.

    Complete sets of the equipment needed to connect to the Satellite Television Network including the satellite dish and decoder will be available in over 1,000 sales outlets throughout the country with CBNSat's exclusive distribution partner, Singer Sri Lanka

    Sri Lanka TVAsoka Handagama breaks new ground with 'Me Paren Enna'

    The call to join them on the newly re-opened A9 highway is by Young Asia Television, a call made via the highly popular media device of teledrama that keeps Lankans captivated come night, despite turbulent politics and bizarre happenings and ominous prophesies that doomsday is near.

    Literary cum cinematic presentations of the horrendous spectre of war that continues to plague human civilization usually deal with missiles and mortars with war planes that soar high like birds of death with processions of grey uniform clad soldiers marching in thousands in hard boots. an aspect that is marginalized in this grisly scenario is the most significant i.e. the impact that war has on the lives of the average man and woman and child.

    Of course it has to be admitted that many a Lankan producer has been cognizant of this aspect and has produced a few remarkable pieces but Take this road bursts on us with a difference.

    “Me Paren Enna” is telecast every Saturday at 8.30 p.m. on Channel Eye and Sunday at 3.30 p.m. on Rupavahini.
