-- Utanian Cinema/Film --
Utanian cinematic expression is relatively new, the technology only having existed in the past
fifty years in the Dependencies. Yet, despite this setback, Utanian cinema has exploded over
the past twenty years, with several productions being still available on video in Utania
(several more were burnt by the oppressive regime). A continuation of the traditional literary
themes has evolved in Utanian cinema, with a production of "Kopanaj taura yo Opay" released
in '97. Unfortunately, most Utanian cinema is only available in Utanian, and few have been
translated. There is growth in Ingallish-language productions, primarily for foreigner
audiences in the main centres, and most inernational blockbuster films are available in Utania
Fortunately for the Utanian arts, all political parties have vowed to provide funding
to Utanian art foundations, and to prevent too great an influx of foreign-made films into
Utania, in order to foster local artistic talent.
-- Radio and Television --
Utania has seven government-owned television stations, and several more radio stations. The
national Ingallish-language TV stations are TV1 and Channel 2, the former being a news and
documentary viewing, and the latter being entertainment, including many foreign television
programmes. There is an almost-national Utani language station, Amara-Nij Utani, which is
educational for the non-Utanian as it offers several programmes in Ingallish describing the
culture of the traditional Utani. This will be available in the major cities, and most other
Cable TV has not yet come to Utania, though there is plans for this before the end of
300AP. Most major hotels will immediately begin subscribing, as they are dependent on Luka
free-to-air television and in-house video until now.
There is several national and regional radio stations available, trasmitting mostly on
the AM band (560-1700 kHz), but some, especially on the east cost, are on the FM band (90-110
MHz in Utania). Radio Utania is the national "news and views" broadcaster, available on 720
kHz and 95.3 MHz, which also has plans to commence international transmission. It already
transmits into Guwimith region.
Utania uses the Christianan standard for video and television.
