Mr. Aboud Jumbe First Vice-President of Tanzania and Chairman of the Zanzibar Revolutionary Council, opened a five-day seminar on colour television in Zanzibar on Monday (17 February). It is the first ever held on African soil.
32 participants from 17 countries are taking part and the main subjects under discussion are television journalism and television film production -- including the shooting, editing and presentation of colour television films. Other subjects include presentation of adult and children's educational programmes and new inventions in television picture transmission.
In his opening speech Mr. Jumbe said that Tanzania had decided to go in for colour television from the start for economic reasons and that they did not regret this decision. He added that those countries who opted for black and white transmissions still have colour as their ultimate aim.
The seminar was organised by the Zanzibar Government in collaboration with the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Tanzania. The West German Ambassador, Baron von Muellenheim-Rechberg spoke after Mr. Jumbe and said that if well used television could bring about many changes in developing countries.
