Docu on PH Radio in the US colonial period kicks off broadcasting centennial celebrations

A documentary on the emergence of Philippine radio during the American colonial period will officially launch the celebration of 100 Years of Broadcasting in the Philippines (100 YBP), in a webinar hosted by the Department of Broadcast Communication (DBC), College of Mass Communication (CMC), University of the Philippines, Diliman (UPD), on June 29, 2022, 10 am, via the DZUP 1602 khz Facebook page.

The documentary Wika, Awit, Radyo, at Pananakop, produced and written by UP Professor Elizabeth Enriquez, and directed by Maps Arciga, will be aired during the webinar. It asserts how broadcasting was first used as a colonial apparatus, but later adopted for local purposes. Tagalog and other Filipino languages took centerstage in the story, being formative to the medium’s acculturation process.

The documentary was produced with the support of the joint SALIKHA Grants for Creative Projects of the K-12 Transition Program of the Commission on Higher Education and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts.

Expected to grace the event are UP President Danilo Concepcion, UPD Chancellor Fidel Nemenzo, UP Visayas Chancellor Clement Camposano, and UPD CMC Dean Fernando Paragas.

UPD DBC Chair Daphne-Tatiana Canlas will introduce the activities and programs of the 100 YBP, which commences with a national conference this October 18-21, 2022, among other events.

Last March, 100 YBP had a soft launching when it aired over DZUP 1602 khz Facebook page the pilot episode of Pag-uugat, Pagpapatuloy: Ang Epikong Dumaracol ng mga Tagbanua Kalamianen ng Hilagang Palawan, a set of never-before-heard recordings of the epic, foregrounding the importance of human memory and the voice in the evolution of broadcasting.

The webinar is free and open to the public. To join, register at https://tinyurl.com/549rvccz.
