On November 1st EPTV will launch Al-Dhakira TV, a themed channel dedicated to history and memory. The date was not chosen at random since it marks the 66th anniversary of the start of the Algerian War of Independence. It is the first Arab and African channel devoted to these subjects.
The launch of Al-Dhakira has been in preparation for several months. Different players have been enlisted to create programmes in cooperation with national authorities and partner institutions. President Abdelmadjid Tebboune himself said that “the ministry organized meetings with different sectors,” aware of the “pioneering role which falls to it, in terms of preserving the memory and instilling in younger generations the historical legacy and culture of our glorious revolution.”
After the distance learning channels Al-Sadissa and El Marrifa, EPTV is also due to launch a new youth channel in December.
