Mongolian National Broadcaster opens doors to the public


In celebration of its 45th anniversary this year, the Mongolian National Broadcaster (MNB) opened its doors to the public last weekend for the first time. The artists, engineers, technical staff, administrative staff and affiliated entities of MNB worked in cooperation to arrange tours and divide guests into tour groups to learn about the 45-year history of the MNB and its work in recording stories about Mongolia, the country of nomads, through radio and television.
The tour began at Studio 600, where the “1 Minute, 1 Million” and “Hey, Hey” entertainment programmes are recorded, and the guests had their pictures taken with the host of these programmes, G. Khankhuu. The artists of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Artistic Teams of the MNB showed the guests how they prepare their programmes and informed them of the special features of their roles. Further into the tour the guests learned about how voice acting is recorded, how cartoons are made and how the montage work proceeds.
Respected veteran journalists and announcers such as D. Tsoodol, Ch. Ichinkhorloo and D. Tsovoo welcomed the guests when they visited the MM Agency, which prepares the well-known and longest running programme, the Tsagiin Khurd and Parliamentary Interview.
The premises of MNB were crowded with amazed guests saying things like, “In what direction should we go?” “Where are you now?” “Can you take our picture?” and “Good Luck!” Visitors found the tour very interesting and especially enjoyed the chance to see some of the many talented people and glamorous studios of MNB.
The Children’s and Sports Programme Departments were considered as some of the most welcoming parts of the tour. At the Sports Programme Department, the sports journalist M. Erdenebat asked the tour groups “How are you enjoying the tour in our MNB? The energy that children give out is so pure and bright. Likewise, the energy of our department is lively, as the legendary champions visit us here and give interviews”. He showed the visitors the Mongolian Flag that Olympics Champion E. Badar-Uugan wore as a cloak when he received the gold medal at the Beijing Olympics.
A four year old boy, visiting the MNB with his grandmother, said “I would like to become a television presenter when I grown up,” probably echoing the feelings of every child visiting the premises.
A photo exhibition at the premises displayed the magnificent history of the MNB, which has witnessed and recorded 45 years of Mongolian development. When first established, the MNB had a gigantic television camera; this old camera and other equipment were on display, to the delight of the visitors.
