World Television Day is globally observed today to highlight the importance of visual medium and to recognize its increasing impact on decision-making and potential role in shaping global conversations. The theme for this year's edition is 'Accessibility'.


On this day in 1996, the United Nations held the First World Television Forum and decided to observe 21st November every year as World Television Day.


Meet-ups at local and global levels take place to make people aware about television's role in communication and globalisation.


This day also marks the commitment of governments, news organisations and individuals to deliver unbiased information in times when the authenticity of content on social media platforms is questionable. Lets look at the television's journey in India over the years:


Television was invented in 1924 by a Scottish engineer, John Logie Baird, but it came to India in the September of 1959 with the assistance of the UNESCO. In India the Daily transmission began in 1965 as a part of Akashvani. 1982 was the year when, National telecast was introduced and coinciding the ASIAD-82, color television was introduced in India. During this time, there was only one national channel, the government-owned Doordarshan. 'Krishi Darshan' was telecast in 1967 as the first  programme, which also became the longest running programme of Indian TV. Although the 'Ramayana' and 'Mahabharata' were the first major television series produced,  'Hum Log' will always carry the badge of first serial on Indian television. 


'Wagle Ki Duniya', 'Buniyaad' 'Tamas' 'Shaktiman' are some of other very popular programmes. With Kajal and Sudhir, this is Tripti Srivastava, Akashvani News, Delhi.
