Commissions for Asian Network

BBC Asian Network has announced a series of documentaries, which will see 15 new commissions being broadcast on the network from today until April 2011.

The first one, a 30 minute documentary on the floods in Pakistan, was broadcast on Wednesday evening.

Investigating relevant issues to the UK's Asian communities, the specials will cover a range of topics, from the slums in India, to the Commonwealth Games and radicalism. They will challenge current issues and offer an in-depth investigation into many of the subject areas that are of interest to the target audience.

Husain Husaini, Head of Programmes, BBC Asian Network, says: "We are very proud of our Asian Network Reports Specials. We aim to produce the best original journalism about British Asian communities and this season we have some fascinating new stories that we believe will be of interest to the Asian Network audience but also to many other media outlets."

Asian Network was recognised at this year's Sony Radio Academy Awards, winning Best Speech Programme for Nihal's afternoon show and the Bronze Award for the Asian Network Reports – Passport To Murder News Special.
