Opportune timing?

The timing of these courses could be quite opportune as ZBC seeks to add some new channels. The ZBC CEO Patrick Mavhura announced:

We will increase our channels and hope to have a security services television channel, wildlife, history of our country and Africa among other channels… We will have a full spectrum channel to carry a variety of content and then news and current affairs, sports, music, tourism and nature channels initially.

Zimpapers also said they will be airing a “feel good” news channel by the end of this coming month. On top of that they plan to add 5 more channels eventually so it may be a good time to take advantage of these opportunities if you are interested in the film making industry.
