Indigenous North African Television
A new Television series is about to be launched from the Public Access Studios of Adelphia Communications in Eagle Rock , Los Angeles, California, under the name of AMAZIGH WEEKLY NEWS. This news broadcast will report on events and issues which affect Imazighen, the indigenous people of North Africa also known as Berbers.
The television production will broadcast news from Algeria, Morocco, and other regions where Imazighen represent a certain percentage of the population. In addition, the program will present regular updates on Amazigh Human Rights issues, cultural events in the United States, and occasional editorials. The producers and announcers are:
- Assistant Producer: Karim Boughida, Human Rights
The program has a number of correspondents in the US and abroad, and will relay information from direct Algerian and Moroccan sources, from Niger and the Canary Islands. We encourage all Imazighen to submit video coverage from these countries.
Our distribution plan will include the airing of the program through Public Access television, secured by individuals in ten US cities: Los Angeles, San Francisco and Berkeley, New York, Washington D. C., Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle, and San Diego. We are looking for someone in Atlanta.
Production is scheduled to start on July 20, and first airing in early September. We welcome all submissions, questions, and further enquiries.
Helene Hagan, Executive Producer
