SLRC to bring back quality time to family evenings

In a bid to end the dearth of quality television programmes in Sri Lanka, the national TV channel - Rupavahini aims to revolutionise their weekday evening programme belt from 7pm - 8pm.

Under the campaign 'Hawasata Gedara', the Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation launched their latest line of programmes at a media event in Colombo earlier this week.

The new line of programmes will be initiated from next Monday (March 20).

Speaking at the event, chairman of the SLRC - Attorney-At-Law - Ravi Jayawardena said that the sole purpose of this change was to introduce a higher form of entertainment to their viewers as the National TV channel of Sri Lanka.

The programmes are as follows :

Monday - Earth is Yours - Natural HIstory
A series of selected world class nature documentaries with Sinhala subtitles and dubbing.

Tuesday - Hitha Langa 7
Renowned television personality - Hema Nalin Karunaratne re-appears in SLRC after 17 years with knowledge and entertainment.

Wednesday - Kauda Star

Thursday - X Files - Top 20
The blockbuster mystery thriller - X files is back with Sinhala subtitles.
