Nicola Harford visits Burma

iMedia Director, Nicola Harford, has just returned from visiting Burma to review the work of BBC Media Action. The sprawling headquarters of one of its key partners, state broadcaster MRTV, is located an hour’s drive north of the capital city Naypidaw.  Despite Burma’s move towards democracy since elections in 2010 and the installation of a nominally civilian government, so sensitive and secret was MRTV’s location that even today there is barely any sign of its existence.
