Star World to air 'General Hospital' in February

MUMBAI: English general entertainment channel Star World continues with its aim to bring the best that American television has to offer. From next month it will kick off the medical soap General Hospital.

This will air Monday to Friday to 4 pm. The show has been airing in the US since 1963.

Events in this daytime drama are centred in Port Charles, a community on the coast in upper New York. The plot centres around the people who work in General Hospital, people who work in the business community (most notably for the Quartermaines' company ELQ), and former agents of the World Security Bureau.

This will complement the soap Bold And The Beautiful which airs from Monday to Friday at 3 pm, Saturdays and Sundays at 10 am.

A new show My Wife And Kids will air every 

Monday at 8 pm with repeats on Tuesdays at 10 am and on Saturdays at 1 pm. Black comedian Damon Wayans stars in this comedy about an all-but-typical, definitely dysfunctional, but still very close-knit family. Wayans is Michael Kyle, a modern-day patriach who rules his roost with a unique style and patchwork philosophy.

On the local front the chat show Rendezvous With Simi Garewal returns. This kicks off on 12 February 2006 and will air every Sunday at 8:30 pm. As in the past it will offer one to one intimate chats with celebrities and other movers and shakers. The show is also looking to have international personalities as guests. Right now Oprah Primetime airs in that slot.

The channel will also air the special Zubin Mehta In Concert. This airs on 5 February at 10 pm with a repeat on 11 February at 4 pm. Last December, symphony conductor Zubin Mehta along with the Bavarian State Orchestra performed for the first time in Chennai at the Chennai Music Academy and in New Delhi at Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium.

The first concert of works by Verdi, Schubert and Beethoven was a memorial concert in remembrance of the Indian Ocean tsunami a year ago. While Mehta performed in Chennai for the first time he performed in Delhi after a decade. The team performed to a packed hall of select invitees. Eminent personalities turned up, including Nobel Laurete in economics Amartya Sen and the Tamil Nadu governer, Surjit Singh Barnala.
