NDTV goes dark
Advertisement
#1
NDTV on Sunday night was due to show India's Daughter, produced by the BBC, but Indian authorities intervened and halted the broadcast.

However, instead of scheduling other programming, the station went dark for an hour, broadcasting only a slate with the documentary's title in red and white, below it a strapline with reactions from well-known Indians to the banning and statistics about rape in India.

Editorial director and anchor at NDTV explained the decision in a tweet:


<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-conversation="none" lang="en"><p>We won't Shout but we will be Heard <a href="https://twitter.com/SharmaKadambini">@SharmaKadambini</a>: <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/IndiasDaughters?src=hash">#IndiasDaughters</a> 9pm to 10pm <a href="http://t.co/UKfqtTImL7">pic.twitter.com/UKfqtTImL7</a>”</p>&mdash; sonia singh (@soniandtv) <a href="https://twitter.com/soniandtv/status/574604884609122305">March 8, 2015</a></blockquote>
