Whats the most annoying thing about sikh channel? sangat television?

Recommended Posts

I find the lack of scheduling listings is quite annoying and hardly much time for live discussion shows most of the air time is filled with things you can find on youtube anyways.

the matrimonial programme.

the poor camera work. when the cameras still running and the presenters are still there completely oblivious having their convos...lol kind of funny actually.

when they just keep repeating the same stuff.

when wollies phone in and leave their tv on and say hello like a gazillion times. the presenters just like apne tv de avaaz band karlo ji. n they still dont get the message.

the lame adverts. sofa factory, claim today...

forever seeing oldies with their dodgy habits and accents and their appauling english. rarely seeing well versed youth or programmes aimed at youth.

and that punjabi alphabet programme with those cartoon kids skipping in the medows. arghh that song is so annoying!

The fact that there are two channels. We should have one saanjha channel for the Panth in the UK that we can all support and pay for rather than wasting an extra £1million a year on running a second channel ... when that money can be better utilised for poor members of the Panth and others in getting access to education and healthcare.

Sangat's matrimonial programme is a disgrace if they are still mentioning biraderi ... and please can others also email them and to register our protests at DS Bal of Sikh Channel's secular music station promoting alcohol, jaath-paath and disrespect for women.

The ridiculous claim today ads and the matrimonial shows that continually mention the person's caste. Those two are major bug bears of mine. Also the lack of youth presence on the stations, it's mostly the elder set doing a TV version of "sit down on a bench in the park and have a natter". Nothing wrong with it as such but let's get some fresh blood on the air!

I have but 2 gripes with both channels :

1) The extremely poor use of the English langauge in it's written captions that has noticeably gotten worse in recent months.

2) The overuse of a musical backdrop to accompany news featues. That is the hallmark of Indian TV news as Indians are incapable of folliwing news stories without music setting the tone. That kind of Indian dumbing down we Sikhs should we moving away from not embracing. The Sikh Channels should be helping to create a generation that has enough attention span that it can follow news without a soundtrack telling them how to feel about the news story.

At the moment - The most annoying thing from my perspective is, both of these channels not covering Delhi protests effectively, SikhChannel just shows a recorded video footage in the night at approx. 09:00PM and that's it, no live talk show/no coverage of protest by Bhen Nirpreet Kaur Jee, no discussion panels over phone/updates from Delhi committee members, so we in UK have no idea of what is going on in Delhi/Punjab protests over Sajjan Kumar acquittal. Over the past few weeks, both channels have lost direction.

Their discussion shows are a joke. It never a debate. It their way or the highway. If anyone has a different opinion they get cut off. On the panels no matterhow many you have on there they all have same opinion so totally pointless

I love the opportunity some forums give for a good old rant. Most annoying thing is the fact that we have 2 channels that for the sake of petty rivalry (anyone who has dealt with them knows this as one will insist on media rights over the other!) do not unite their resources. Some programmes are great - but few and far in between those are utter dribble. Quality of the spoken English is poor (not talking about the mother tongue Punjabi speakers here, but the British born Sikhs) and sometimes the Punjabi can be awful too. Some youth presenters in particular need to smarten up - wearing Bana is fine, but if wearing western clothing - please put on a decent suit, rather than baggy hip hop type of tracksuite or pyjama type of gear. Sometimes the Dawat i Islami channel with their fancy roses in their green pagris is a more entertaining option (ok - only for a minute or so!...) because the Punjabi quality is clearer and more understandable with explainations that are eloquent rather than brash and raw. The matrimonial show beggars belief. The morning show with the ghostly office backdrop, presenters with zero chemistry and nauseating chit chat should study the morning shows of the mainstream channels - hey you do not need big bucks for a top notch breakfast show - remember The Big Breakfast on channel 4 (the early years rather than the later ones). Rant over.

You know one thing - SikhChannel was already running with it's main presenters Mr. Ranjit Singh Rana, Mr. Dhesi etc., and when SangatTV launched, all of these SikhChannel presenters had a show on SikhChannel critisizing SangatTV launch, and it should not had been done, we should have only one Channel etc. A couple of weeks later, they left SikhChannel and appeared on Sangat TV :).
