TV studio Prizreni

I   INTRODUCTION

TV studio Prizren is a local television which is for the time being functional and has been broadcasting limited program: 2 hours in the morning and 2 to 3 hours in the evening 18.30 - 20.30(21.30). Broadcasting is done through terrestrial transmitter system and for now it covers only Prizren Region and according to information from the field it covers Gjakova, too.

Technical and staff capacities of this TV are very limited. TV Studio is placed in the premises of the House of Culture "Xhemali Berisha" in Prizren.

The programs broadcast by this studio, for the time being, are very limited and in many occasions improvised.  At this moment all the broadcasting is done only in Albanian.

TV Studio Prizren is a juridical subject, it is registered and has a temporary broadcasting permission until 15 November, 2000.  This permission has to do with the election campaign. In TV Studio Prizren there are ten employees.

Professional qualifications of the staff are not fascinating, however, with maximal engagement of all the staff, we manage to broadcast the program, however modest it is. TV Studio Prizren is in the phase of its consolidation and creation of qualified professional staff, independent in their public activity.

We plan to have staff of 5 people. Of this number, now in the consolidation of this studio, three people are engaged, who do the work on voluntary basis, without any compensation, and Prizren Legal Club, which offers professional legal assistance.

II   DESCRIPTION

The objective and independent information of the population is basis of democratization and development of one region. The informational darkness always, in modern life conditions, is base for intolerance, self isolation of a society, apathy and real disorientation in time and space, but also a base for creation of a collective illness as Erich From defines it “Escape from freedom”. In one word it’s a base for an intolerant and undemocratic society.

TV Studio Prizreni, as emphasized in the introduction, is now an active TV Studio and although technically limited, understaffed and in relation to this qualitatively limited, it produces a program in which it takes part with it’s own productions in more than 60% of the overall transmissions.

Morning programs

The duration of the morning programs is 2 hours, from 09:00 till 11:00.

Programs: The news (repeat of the last night edition); overview of the press and program for children. These programs are mostly own production, except that sometimes in absence of programs for children, similar programs of sister TV Studios or cartoons are broadcast.

Programs for children, with usual duration of 30 ­ 60 minutes, are mostly of own production. They are based on school programs for special occasions, children festivals organized in town or in other centers, cartoon ­ mostly borrowed and sometimes on a short film.

The press overview program presents actual daily press in Albanian in Kosova and lasts 30 minutes.

Evening programs

The duration of evening program is 2 ­ 3 hours and that from 18:30 ­ 20:30 (21:30).

Programs: Daily news; reports; music program; drama or film; open studio (once a week for 30 minutes); News ­ together with TV Kukes; humor and music.

Daily news -everyday from 18:30. Duration 20 ­ 30 minutes

Reports 2-3 times a week from 18:40 (19:00). Duration 10 ­ 15 minutes. Achievements in different sections of public life are presented in this reports.

Musical programs  2 ­ 3 times a week from 19:00. Duration 30 minutes. These programs are usually borrowed from another station.

Drama and film program  2 ­ 3 times a week from 19:30. These programs are borrowed ­ not to use a different more severe term. The drama programs are usually in Albanian and they are produced in other centers. In this slot sometimes, because of shortages, documentaries can be shown instead, which are also borrowed.

Open studio ­ contact program with a guest in studio, usually a personality from public life. These persons are international ore domestic. We discuss the certain problems in public life with the possibility of telephone interaction with audience. This program is once a week on Tuesday or Thursday from 19:00. Duration is 60 ­ 90 minutes, depends on number of callers.

The end of week  informative program. Once a week ­ on Friday at 19:00. Duration 30 minutes.

Joined news program  Every evening from 20:30. Duration 30 minutes. This is a joined program with TV Kukes. The transmission can be seen in Ulcinj ­ Montenegro. Covers a wide territory: The Dugagjini area (Prizren, Gjakova, Peja), Northern Albania (Shkoder, Kukes, Bajram Curri) and a part of Montenegro (Ulcinj).

Music and humor programs  are programs, usually borrowed, and they are shown 2 ­3 times a week. The type of program is different ­ folk, pop, rock and classical. The humor programs are in Albanian ­ usually, but also they are some in English with subtitles.

III.   FUTURE GOALS

From the above presentation is easy to conclude that the program is poor and far away from the quality of a good local station. The aim is to transform this station to a professional local station, which will have program’s for all the minorities who live in the region (Serbs, Bosnians, Turks and Romas) with adequate minutes. Other than this orientation, so called socio-politic, the aims are orientated towards creation of a program scheme that will cover different areas of life and all the age groups.
