Some Major Programmes
  Localizing 'Hands on' Programmes in India  

As part of the TVE Video Resource Centre activities, CEE is in the process of localizing 50` Hands On' programmes in one or more Indian Languages. These 5-minute capsules showcase technologies and processes helping communities and entrepreneurs around the world to develop more sustainable lifestyles, practices and businesses.

As part of the project, the Advisory Committee Meeting was held on 21 April 2004. The shortlisting of programmes relevant to India has been completed and language to be versioned has been decided. The process of identifying producers to do the versioning of the programme has begun.

'Truth Talking' Documentaries
CEE has signed an MoU with Kairali TV, the popular Malayalam channel to broadcast TVE’s “Truth Talking” documentaries. The six half-hour documentaries, looking at how Asia Pacific civil society is coping with crisis and rapid change, was broadcasted in June-July 2003.

In 2001-2002, the Truth Talking Project (TTP) of the Television Trust for the Environment Asia Pacific supported indigenous film-makers in six countries across the region to produce half hour documentaries that looked at how local communities are responding to natural or man-made crises that threaten their lives, lifestyles and livelihoods. Rebuilding Hope is one of the programmes produced under this project, by CEE.

Rebuilding Hope (26')
What defence can ordinary people have when the earth itself shakes, shattering in a few minutes what they have been building for decades? Life would never be the same for millions of people in the western Indian state of Gujarat after the devastating earthquake of January 2001. But as soon as the dust settled, communities started rebuilding their lives slowly but steadily. Sometimes they worked with the government, and at other times in spite of the government. Within a year, the landscape had been transformed. This was one of the six programmes produced in the Asia Pacific region under the Truth Talking Project of TVE Asia Pacific.
Green Teacher
This one hour video programme looks at various ways to educate about the environment. This video programme comprises of four segments—Environmental Education—What, Why, How, Show and Tell, Acting Green and The World is Your Classroom.

EE programme in All India Radio
