The Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) received a whopping 140 submissions for its radio drama programmes.

Last November, NBC called on storytellers, writers and producers to submit culturally-relevant and captivating radio drama proposals for its new venture – the Molelo Radio Drama Project.

The genres include crime, comedy, action/adventure and romance.

The idea is for the corporation to produce 26-minute drama episodes for each of the 11 radio stations.

Nico Mwiya, NBC acting chief commercial officer, told VIBEZ! That Molelo aims to preserve and promote local culture and traditions by telling stories that reflect the experiences and values of local cultures. Furthermore, the project will help to reinforce the importance of cultural identity and heritage.

“Five stories for each radio station were selected. Based on the selection criteria, 36 producers were shortlisted for nine language groups,” he explained.
