EBS to Air Series of BBC DocumentariesThe Education Broadcasting System (EBS) is to agree a contract in September or October with the BBC to air a series of BBC documentaries.
A source in the EBS said on August 23, 'According to the contract, the EBS will annually broadcast more than 26 programs out of the 50 or 60 documentaries that are made by the BBC, one or two weeks later after the BBC airs them itself.'
Up until now, the EBS, which has broadcast many BBC documentaries on its program 'Current Affairs - Changing World', has had to select and pay for each program individually.
The source added, 'Along with BBC documentaries, we will seek to broadcast programs made by other foreign broadcasters such as the PBS of the U.S. and the Japanese NHK.'
