Ittyadi to feature a documentary on MA Taher

Maverick television host Hanif Sanket and his popular magazine programme Ittyadi have pioneered investigative and thought-provoking documentaries on prolific personalities from different strata of society. Keeping up with this trend, the latest episode of Ittyadi will broadcast a documentary on renowned photojournalist MA Taher.

Taher's unconventional approach to photography and elaborate works on different subjects for more than three decades has made him a familiar name among the intelligentsia of the country. Ittyadi will zoom on this and much more.

The month of January marks the birth anniversary of poet Jasimuddin who is also known as the Palli Kabi (rural poet). To pay tribute to the legendary poet, the shooting of this episode of Ittyadi is being done in front of the ancestral home of the poet in Faridpur. Defying the biting cold, 50,000 people attended the shooting session to watch Hanif Sanket's hosting prowess and 'Ittyadi's' variety of skits and regular segments.

This episode of 'Ittyadi' contains an inspirational documentary on Brahmonbaria artist Helal Mia and his family as well. All the seven members of his family are blind. Besides, there is a documentary on Barcelona, Spain. Pantho Kanai has sung a famous number by Jasimuddin and there is more. Sponsored by Keya Cosmetics Limited, the show will go on air on January 29 after the 8pm news on BTV and BTV World.
