While the group stage encounter between the two teams got washed off, they are set to clash again and this time it will be the semi-final of the edition of the showpiece event at Old Trafford on Tuesday. Going into the tournament, the Indians were considered favourites while the Kiwis flew under the radar to start with. But as it has been the case with New Zealand when it comes to any limited-overs tournament, this time too, they have shown their mettle and walked straight into the knockouts at the fourth spot.
History[ edit ] to Beginning[ edit ] On 15 September , at the studio of All India Radio , Delhi, the very first TV channel in India started an experimental telecast with a small transmitter and a makeshift studio.
Until , all the regular daily transmissions were operated by the All India Radio. Krishi Darshan, Chaupaal, Samachar, and Kalyani were the first programs on the channel. This telecaster was named 'DD1' and started regular transmission.
In , DD1 started telecast of sponsored TV serials, which were produced by veteran filmmakers. After the success of Hum Log, many other TV producers and filmmakers created many popular shows.
Some of them are mentioned below. Even though in those days, cable and satellite channels were not easily available, DD1 was still ruling the chart, as it was the only channel available terrestrially.
Some of the popular shows were also aired on DD National. To provide more entertainment, DD National opened an afternoon slot for housewives, with the telecast of Shanti.
To support the success of Shanti, many other shows like Swabhimaan , Farz, and Yug were introduced and all of them were praised. In , Prasar Bharati , the parent body of Doordarshan, was formed. In , after tasting success with India's Most Wanted, Jasoos Vijay and Suraag in prime time, Prasar Bharati decided to revamp both channels, and many new serials were introduced on DD National, but very few of them were successful because of a limited prime time slots of 9 to , compared to 8 to 11 for other channels.
In , DD offered its time slots to popular filmmakers and got some popular shows of the time. In , it reduced its window for regional telecasts to 4 PM-7 PM, and stopped airing news at night, which added one and a half hour to its prime time.
Initially, these shows did better, but later, as TRP fell in , Prasar Bharati decided to go for a slot sale policy and invited bids from makers for its 7 PM to 11 PM slot. However, the strategy was not enough for its revival. In late , the slot sale policy of DD was put on hold by the government.
Although many production houses like Balaji Telefilms and SaaiBaba Telefilms had won slots for airing their programs, it could not be commenced as the policy was reported for review. From , Doordarshan has been repeating programmes from its library and does not telecast any new serial.
