Aug 22, 2008 (DVB), This evening the Democratic Voice of Burma will broadcast the first episode of Youth Voice, a news programme aimed at younger viewers, to tie in with its youth website.
The weekly broadcast, which states its aim as "giving youth a voice", will initially run in 10-minute slots on a Friday evening.
DVB bureau chief and Youth Voice coordinator Toe Zaw Latt said the programme will include new footage aimed at a younger audience.
"It will be news based in a simple and easy-to-understand format, plus sports and fun items," he said.
"There are also youth forums showing what young people are thinking about and getting their opinions."
The first episode will air this evening at around 7.20pm, after the international news.
