The two broadcasters have also agreed to jointly produce one daily news bulletin of ten minutes with a focus on cooperation between the two nations in various developmental aspects like tourism, commerce and trade, sports, culture, agriculture and climate change, the official added.

A music reality show, drawing participants from both the nations, is also on the cards. “The programme would be in the nature of a music competition among participants from different categories namely school and college students and housewives,” the official said.

They would also produce a series of quiz programme on India and Bangladesh among school and college students.

“The finale of it (quiz programme) can be held before invited audience either in Kolkata or Dhaka and the event will be broadcast live by both the broadcasters,” the official said.

Besides, co-producing radio series based on reputed literary work, the two broadcasters have also agreed to produce plays based on works of reputed play writers, he added.

The official said cooperation between the two broadcasters for producing various programmes was part of an MoU signed by Prasar Bharati, which runs AIR, and Bangladesh Betar last month in Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh.
