27 Mar 2007

KUALA LUMPUR, TUES: THE Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) keeps a check on the broadcast of foreign serial dramas, and Indonesian serial dramas only take up three per cent of its weekly air time, Deputy Information Minister Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said today.

Ahmad Zahid was replying to a question from Datuk Rosli Mat Hasan (BN-Dungun) who had wanted to know the number and titles of the Indonesian serial dramas broadcast by RTM last year and the rationale for broadcasting serial dramas from abroad.

He said RTM broadcast only four serial dramas from Indonesia last year, and they were “Romantika Shanghai” (of 62 episodes), “Malam Kundang” (65 episodes) “Hikmah” (60 episodes) and “Kenapa Ada Cinta?” (23 episodes).

All these dramas were broadcast one after the other from April to December, and took up air time of one hour a day from Monday to Friday.
