The National Broadcasting Council of Azerbaijan has clarified the question of termination of foreign serials broadcast since May 1.
Foreign serials will not be shown on television since May 1, chairman of the Council Nushiravan Maharramli told Trend.
Maharramli noted that there is a lot of talk about the fact that this question can be postponed.
"It is not so in fact TV channels themselves is responsible for the recently beginning television serials. You will see everything yourself since May 1" Maharramli said.
Maharramli noted that National Broadcasting Council of Azerbaijan seeks to stimulate the national television serials broadcast in Azerbaijan.
"It is a serious work. It is sometimes said that we intervene in the policy programs of TV channels. The National Broadcasting Council of Azerbaijan - is determined by the state structure, which determines the policies in the field of television. We have adopted such measures in an attempt to stimulate the translation of Azeri TV serials, and I think that it is the right thing" Maharramli said.
Sufficient resources are allocated to produce new TV serials, Maharramli said.
Referring to the quality of TV series, he noted that there are many talks about it. According to Maharramli, of course, we must pay attention to quality, think about quality, but we must start from something in order to achieve quality.
