Circular 4/17

Circular to all Broadcasting Stations

BA Directive: Provision of Programme Schedule
during the Silent Period

I refer to Article 8 of the Broadcasting Authority Directive on Programmes and Advertisements broadcast on Television and Radio Stations during the period 8th May to 3rd June 2017 and remind you of the requirement to provide by noon today a detailed schedule of programmes and advertisements to be broadcast during the silent period, this being the 2nd and 3rd June 2017. I would point out that the silent period starts just after midnight of the 1st/2nd June.

The requested information should include the topics and names of participants. Failure to do so would constitute a breach of the Authority’s directive. I therefore urge your kind cooperation so that we can work together to ensure that the law is observed during this delicate time.
