Subject: VaticVatican Radioâs English SW broadcast to Asia come to an end

Vatican Radio24 March 2017
Vatican Radioâs English shortwave broadcast for Asia has come to an
end, with its last transmission going out Friday evening, after nearly 60
years of service. However this does not mean it has disappeared altogether.

What ultimately closed on March 24 as Vatican Radioâs English Service for
Asia, is however very much alive online on Vatican Radioâs website. The
gradual phasing out of Vatican Radioâs shortwave frequencies is seen as part
of the reform of the Roman Curia or the central administration of the
Catholic Church here in the Vatican, called for by Pope Francis. The Pope
established the new dicastery or office of the Secretariat for
Communications on June 27, 2015, âbringing 9 media bodies of the Vatican,
including Vatican Radio, under the Secretariatâs direction, with the purpose
of overhauling, streamlining and ultimately merging them as a cohesive unit.

What ended on March 24 as Vatican Radioâs English Service for Asia began way
back in 1958. The only âEnglish programme of Vatican Radio then, headed by
Jesuit Father Thomas OâDonnell, was repeated a number of times in different
directions, âincluding towards Africa and South Asia. It was a weekly
10-minute news broadcast for India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. However, the
need for special programmes adapted to the âdistinctive cultural needs and
tastes of Africa and South Asia gave way to independent programmes for
âthese two regions. âIn 1964 South Asia got a boost when Pope Paul VI
visited Bombay (today Mumbai), India for the 38th International Eucharistic
Congress from 2nd to 5th of December. Hence in May 1965, the Indian Section
officially came into being with a 10-minute broadcast twice a week each in
the evening in Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam , while English went on air daily
Monday through Saturday. In 1982, all the four languages began
re-broadcasting their evening programmes the following morning. Three years
later â on May 12, 1985, the Malayalam programme got extra airing time,
broadcasting for 15 minutes in the morning, whereas the rest continued
broadcasting for 10 minutes.

In 1986, Pope John Paul II visited India from January 31 to February 11.
Just prior to this visit, on January 7th that year, Hindi, Tamil and English
were given extra time, and so all the four languages began broadcasting
daily for 15 minutes each, in the morning, which was a feature programme.

The evening transmission consisted of 6 minutes of news only. By the end of
1986 the evening 6-minute news increased to 10 minutes and was repeated the
following morning.

On March 25, 1990, Hindi, Tamil Malayalam and English began broadcasting for
15 minutes each, repeating it the following morning. And from Sept. 23,
1993, the four languages were transmitting for nearly 20 minutes each,
repeating the evening programme twice the following morning.

It was on Oct 24, 1993 that the fifth language, Urdu, that is spoken mainly
in Pakistan but is also widely followed in India, especially in the north,
was added to the Indian Section. It began with a 7-minute Sunday programme,
as part of the Hindi programme. On March 30, 2003 Urdu became a stand-alone
programme, broadcasting for 15-minutes on Sundays and Wednesdays, and
repeated the following mornings. The Urdu programme however closed down in
September, 2013, after nearly 20 âyears of service. On May 16, 2015, Vatican
Radio marked the 50th anniversary of its Indian programmes with a âHoly
âMass and a reception.

9820 kHz is requested by BBC Seela Oman relay
to Somalia / Africa target at same time.

Maybe is a keyboard glitch error,
meant rather 9720 kHz instead of 9820 kHz.
