Theme of the year : Youth and Radio
`Bangladesh Betar for Every people, for Every time, Every place.’
Bangladesh Betar, the listeners of all over the world, all radio stations, other media, cultural personalities, private radio, community radio observe World Radio Day Bishwo Betar Dibosh on 13th February every year. In the British period the then administration started radio broadcast as an electronic media due to socio political cause on 16 December 1939 in this region of Asia. The main reagon was to transmit news and views related to the world war. Najimuddin road Dhaka has become historically important venue of electronic broadcasting because broadcasting was started from that place at first. So the world radio day of this year is very important because Bangladesh Betar celebrate diamond jubilee of radio broadcasting in this year too. We will celebrate both diamond jubilee and World Radio Day this year. Primarily the then Dhaka Radio or Radio broadcast started transmition with the goal of spreading information, education, motivation through entertainment but Radio program news and views have become a very important part and parcel of peoples life. It plays a great role to develop our life style, cultural advancement and awareness raising of our people. The Radio program influence pepoles daily life. In the mass revolution of 1969 and Liberation war 1971 Radio commentary enhanced the courage of youth, student and freedom fighters. Radio played an unparalleled role like a sector of freedom fighting. The news and views dramas and songs of Shadhin Bangla Betar Kendro directly inspired the freedom fighters.
Radio programs are prepared in such a way and spread the news, views, music, jingle, dramas, talks, interviews, field reporting and songs to motivate the listeners in a positive way and change their behavior positively. Bangladesh Betar changes some radical approaches beneficial for the people, take some initiative to reach the listeners, for example Bangladesh Betar Sylhet centre broadcast the 7th March Historical speech of Bangabandhu Sheik Mujibur Rahman, though centrally it has been on air also, To honor religious sentiment started the azan for namaz, It has been started digital recoding before other regional station, interactive programming, FM broadcasting with RJ system, entry listeners view in SMS booth, creation of listeners club to build up feedback system, Phone-in-program as a program format was initiated by Sylhet sentre as a regional station successfully. This all programs later on was executed nationwide. Developed information has been able to change the life pattern and the attitude of the people. Country wide population control, increase in fellowland cultivation, green revolution in agriculture sector, root level health care, notably influence by the media, Radio program. Erradiation of illiteracy and poverty, mother and child care, reduction of environmental pollution, compulsory primary education system all these have been possible with the participation of sensitized people whom uphold awareness by Radio program. People have set their mind and ready to work with national activities and to contribute to national develop.
Some important facts like Increase of labor patient in hospital, hand wash before eating and after using toilet, tooth brush, sense of sanitation are true result of listening to Radio and eagerness to the media activity. Radio program materials include village development issue, uses of improved seed fertilizer, education system, digitalization, vission-2021 etc. Total education success from primary to higher level specialty in the rate of increase in literacy is the success story of the radio broadcast.
Radio Broadcasting is responsibly creature of the whole cultural development after liberation in the country. All the cultural personalities, activists, renowned singers, famous artists whatever we say Bangladesh Betar is directly act as a patron and platform to prepare themselves. To practice Bangla, Bangali Culture radio is the main media which worked from 75 years in this region. Six units, twelve stations of Bangladesh Betar and fourteen community radios, some private radio stations work such a way that now we can say.
As a media Bangladesh Betar and Radio broadcast act as.
01. It is the symbol of youth and speedy.
