News channels to relive Mumbai terror attack with special shows on first anniversary

MUMBAI: News channels will relive the Mumbai terror attack as they line up a slew of special shows to mark the first anniversary.

Zee News Ltd will create a two-minute road block on all its network channels and will pause transmission at 8:58 pm on 26 November. All channels under ZNL would come to a still. “The roadblock is an attempt by Zee News to acknowledge the undying spirit of Indians and an appeal to stand up against terrorism and put India First,” it said in a statement.

The company, which comprises Zee News, Zee News UP, Zee Ghantalu, 24 Ghanta, Zee 24 Taas, Zee Punjabi, Zee Business and Zee Chattisgarh, has also launched a campaign under the aegis of ‘26/11… Ab Aur Nahin’.

IBN7 has also lined up special programming that will emphasize on the victims, survivors, heroes and events of that fateful night. Apart from focusing on the terror attacks themselves including the conspiracy and its execution, the series will also focus on the ground situation on key aspects including marine security, one year down the line from the terror attacks.

The channel will showcase Real Time Line that will be a one hour sequence of events on the fateful night. The programme will be narrated through reporters from each and every spot that came under attack, recalling the terror and fear that prevailed on that fateful day.

Other special shows include The Conspiracy at 10:30 am, a half-hour show based on the conspiracy behind the attack and a special show, The Taj, at 5 pm. Shows on Oberoi Trident and Nariman House will be telecast at 5:30 pm and 6 pm. The special show, Tasveeron Mein 26/11, will showcase a slideshow of the terror attack, along with montage of videos, stills and voices from that dreaded attack last year at 11 pm in the night.

IBN7 managing editor Ashutosh said, “With this special programming on the first anniversary we pay tribute to the brave people who fought to save many by sacrificing their own lives and in a way make each one of us stronger than before.”

Meanwhile, Marathi news channel IBN Lokmat has also planned shows to remember the night. IBN Lokmat editor-in-chief Nikhil Wagle will revisit the wounded lanes of Mumbai in Maza Shahar Mazi Mansa - ek varshanantar (My City, My people – after one year) at 8.30 am.

At 12 noon will be Great-Bhet with special public persecutor Ujwal Nikam, where he will talk about the gruesome attacks and about his continuous crusade against crime and terrorism.

The channel will also air Yaad Karo Kurbani, a show touching upon the lives of the families of the martyrs who sacrificed their lives for our country and its security at 4.30 pm. Other shows on the channel will highlight stories and difficulties faced by police, and a two hour docu-drama Te 60 Taas (Those 60 hours).

NDTV India also has come up with a campaign ‘Ek Lau’ to pay homage to the victims of the attacks. The channel is urging its viewers to join in its campaign to light a candle in the name of all the victims of that dastardly attack that shattered Mumbai and India a year back. The campaign will include on ground events where people will light candles in memory of those who lost their lives and observe a two-minute silence to pay respect to the victims. The channel will live telecast the campaign from 7 pm onward.

Meanwhile, NewsX has lined up a series of programming initiatives in remembrance of the 26/11 incident. The channel has been running a special season, ‘Days of Courage’ throughout the week.

The channel will take the viewers through the survivor stories, the courage and resilience of the people, coastal security issues, review of the media coverage of 26/11 and analysis of the Indian diplomacy post the attacks.

From 9 pm, the channel will air an hour-long programme from Leopold Café – one of targets of the terror attacks- speaking to a cross section of people including police officials, politicians and imminent personalities.
