Nostalgic 80s n early 90s DD days

Say Hellooo! to your school years and your Childhood days :)

National programme was introduced in 1982. In the same year, colour TV was introduced in the Indian market with the live telecast of the Independence Day speech by then prime minister Indira Gandhi on 15 August 1982, followed by the 1982 Asian Games being held in Delhi. The 80s was the era of Doordarshan with soaps like Hum Log (1984), Buniyaad (1986-87), comedy shows like Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi (1984) and mythological dramas like Ramayan (1987-88) and Mahabharat (1988-89) glued millions to Doordarshan. Other popular programs included Hindi film songs based programs like Chitrahaar and Rangoli and crime thrillers like Karamchand (starring Pankaj Kapoor), Byomkesh Bakshi (starring Rajit kapur) and Janki Jasoos.

Doordarshan Celebrates its 50th Anniversary!

Great memories you'll find in this video and I am happy to share a part of it with you all. Interested Viewers can follow the link within the video to watch all the parts.

So here we are talking about the Retro programs on DD and their awesome journey :) it all started when Doordarshan was introduced all over India after Television services were separated from A.I.R(All India Radio) on April 1, 1976 with the live telecast of the Independence Day speech by then prime minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi on 15 August 1982. These were the times when Indian Television evolution was just beginning like News Coverage's around the world and as we see in this video they talk about how they broke more barriers in developing the Network.

Memories refreshed about Entertainment Programs that started becoming more and more popular like Feature Films, Chitrahaar, Sitcoms like Hum-log earning them good TRP and there was this one particular program which is considered to have broken lot of records and ratings, it was the greatest hits of that time "Phool kile hain gulshan gulshan" for which the host Ms Tabassum, expresses her experiences doing the show which are sweet as herself. Many such faces, shows and programs make you feel nostalgic when you watch it after all these years. Doordarshan here also recalls about the experiences of the early Reporters and New readers national and International like Ms Salma if you remember, the beautiful News reader from the 80s who shared her First day experience of News reading in the Studio which was a bittersweet experience as this network was just in a initial stage.

There came many events as the Evolution of Indian Television was just beginning like there was telecast of Asian Games, National programs and that when color was introduced on the Independence day of 1982. I assume the Biggest and greatest unforgettable event was the Victory of ICC World cup Championship 1984, in the same year the Indian viewers enjoyed and were so proud to watch the telecast of the First Indian cosmonaut "Rakesh Sharma" with team who spent eight days journeying around the Earth's orbit in a space station called Salyut 7.

It might have been great experience for Doordarshan to have reached these many years with Telecast of Good shows and educate us with informative films, Documentaries, Movies, sitcom/TV series, Events and various programs National and International and its still goin' on Good.

Congratulations on 50! We wish you all the luck for years to come.

Here's a Video of some Sweet memories of Retro DD.

Pyar Ki Ganga Bahe video

Enjoy this most awaited clip aired on DD somewhere in the early 90s featuring all the Hit Bollywood stars of that time. A beautiful song on HARMONY and Peace :)

Talaash
Its a story about a Writer who visits his Mom's friend casually, there he learns that her son had never visited home from a training. So the Writer decides to look out for him and get him home. He starts his journey and writes about the events n situations he comes across. He meets different kinds of people and associates lot of emotions with his struggle to find his friend. I believe thru this Sitcom viewers liked to question themselves as to what one seeks in Life. Are we clear of what we absoleutly want in life? Why is the thirst of wanting everything in life - neverending? I really loved this show it was a great sitcom made back then in the early 90s, if i am not wrong.

Watch the Pilot Episode, right here ;) its called "THE FIRST LESSON".

This may have not been aired on DD national channel in the 70s or 80s but I must tell ya, its pretty entertaining. I am sure you guys would love it the plot is based on the Foreign students who join the Adult School in UK England i believe, to learn "English as a Foreign Language" this is the course they are "Unrolled for" as one of the student puts it to the school's pompous and tight-fisted Principal, Ms Courtney, when the student is looking to find the Classroom (what he means is Enrolled for) Mr Brown who's the English teacher learns himself the trouble and humor in different cultures from the students as he is teaching them. I love this sitcom enjoyed watchin' very episode n its really hilarious to listen to the students when they innocently mis-interpret things or mis-pronounce words while they are learning. Watch n Enjoy:)">
