Broadcast of Films in Turkish Language to be Banned in Azerbaijan
Azerbaijan, Baku / Trend corr. E.Huseynli / The ban imposed on broadcasting of films in foreign languages by the National Council on TV and Radio Broadcasting will be touched upon films in the Turkish language.
The chairman of the Council, Nushiravan Maharramli, said to Trend news agency that as the ban on broadcasting of films in foreign languages did not affect on Turkish films the channels began frequently broadcasting of Turkish made films.
On 14 March 2007 the Council imposed ban on broadcasting of films in foreign languages from 1 January 2008. As the Turkish language is understandable for Azerbaijanis it was not included into the list of foreign languages.
"So frequent broadcasting of Turkish made films forces the Council to take urgent measures. The mass broadcasting of Turkish serials forces us to include the Turkish language into the list of banned languages," Maharramli said.
The independent experts consider that the reason for so frequent broadcast of Turkish films caused lack of dub offices in channels.
