The Turkish Daily News reports that the Supreme Board of Radio and Television (RTÜK) has lifted a limit of 45 minutes daily and four hours per week imposed on Kurdish broadcasts of cultural shows. Those TV stations that have permission to broadcast in Kurdish can now run movies and concerts beyond the time allocated, but the limitation still stands for news programmes and discussion shows. The decision was taken unanimously by the RTÜK board. But the stations will still have to use Turkish subtitles for all programs. The RTÜK decision does not allow these stations to broadcast 24 hours a day. Licences to broadcast only movies or music are not available, and the licence provided does not allow continuous broadcasting in Kurdish.
