The 2004 International Children’s Day of Broadcasting (ICDB
) marks the second anniversary of Alli Sotak (Speak Up), a two hour weekly programme, which is created by and for Palestinian young people. The inspiration for starting a new programme for youth was born when the Palestinian National TV
network realized that, amidst the gloomy circumstances and grim news headlines which children are exposed to , there was a great hunger for positive content. As a result, Palestine TV
began to participate in the annual ICDB
event in the year 2000, by sponsoring annual special programmes.
