TV viewers in Namibia will be able to watch a four-part documentary series produced by China’s state-run broadcaster CCTV beginning on Monday at 17:20 local time. The show, Glamorous Namibia, will be aired on the state-owned Namibia Broadcast Corporation and is timed to coincide with the 31st anniversary of Sino-Namibian ties.
Given that NBC and CCTV are both state-run channels, it’s not clear if the Chinese embassy had to pay for the air time or if this was done free of charge as a diplomatic arrangement between the two countries.
