Bangladesh Television is going to air Jatrapala after a two-year hiatus, said a press release.
Popular actress Aruna Biswas is going to anchor the programme, which will be aired every Thursday at 2:30pm.
Today, the BTV will air Banglar Bani Opera’s production titled Kajalrekha at 2:30pm.
Besides, the BTV will gradually telecast jatrapala productions of Pratima Opera, Diamond Opera, Shitalakshya Jatra Unit, Swadesh Opera, The Challenge Opera and New Sabuj Opera, among others.
Before the Covid-19 crisis hit Bangladesh in March 2020, the BTV used to air jatrapala once a month. No jatrapala productions were shot in the BTV studio in the past two years. Jagadish Chandra Esh, programme and planning department
director of the state-run television channel, said, ‘The BTV is one of the few platforms that still promotes and patronises local and folk culture. We can learn a lot of things from our heritage and culture. We have to nurture our roots in order to build a secular country.’
