Mumbai-based agent Happenings picks up new programmes on DD

MUMBAI: With the uncertainty prevailing around the implementation of the conditional access system (CAS), marketing concessionaires for public broadcaster Doordarshan are picking up lots of new programmes.

Happenings, a Mumbai-based marketing concessionaire, has picked up five programmes for DD Jullunder; three programmes for DD Metro. This is in addition to the existing programmes on DD Mumbai.

Happenings MD Harish Shaktawat says: "The uncertainty over CAS has helped us. We are getting more enquiries from media planners and buyers who wish to reach out to the interiors and upcountry markets in an attempt to develop a buffer for the post 14 July 2003 period. Several little-known producers in those areas as well as established players in the metros are specially creating content for DD channels in non-metros."
