Channel S to hold pre-launch party

Britain's first Bengali TV channel opens its doors to the public with a pre-launch party on the August bank holiday.

Channel S, which begins broadcasting on the Sky network on December 16, is hosting the event at its 1.7-acre production base in east London.

The channel plans to produce documentaries, news, travel, lifestyle and children’s programmes in Sylheti, the most widespread Bengali dialect in the UK.

The pre-launch event is to include a multi-media show previewing the channels programming content, plus performances from Bollywood and Dallywood artists and entertainers. Guest speakers include A.H. Mofazzel Karim, High Commissioner for Bangladesh to the United Kingdom; Labour peer Baroness Pola Uddin; BBC producer Simon Dring; and Sarwar Ahmed, publisher of Asiana magazine.
