India’s Doordarshan wins Asiavision award
Friday 14 Oct 2011
Indian national broadcaster Doordarshan (DDI) has won the Asiavision monthly award for September for its coverage of a terror attack at the Delhi High Court on 7 September.
A blast from an improvised explosive device near the reception counter of the court claimed 13 lives and injured more than 70 people.
DDI was quick to provide Asiavision members with early pictures of the incident and followed this up with updates.
It was DDI’s second Asiavision monthly award in three months. It won in July for its comprehensive coverage of another terror attack to hit the Indian commercial hub of Mumbai.
