Analysis, book reviews and photography from Abkhazia and the wider Caucasus — updates when time permits

Georgian Public Broadcaster launches First Caucasian Channel

On 3 January the Georgian Public Broadcaster launched its third channel, the First Caucasian Channel. It will broadcast in Russian, and cover news from the wider region. For the moment though, it is only available on its website.

Given time and enough resources, and if the Georgian government ensures that it covers international events objectively and professionally, I believe this initiative has the potential to develop into a Caucasian version of BBC World.
