‘Famili blo Hana’ heating up the airwaves
It’s always a busy normal working day for the staff at the national broadcaster.
But when Julian Maka’a, producer for the new drama ‘Famili blo Hana’ comes calling for people to voice his characters, it’s belly-laughs for everyone.
Thelma Nieng from the library department who plays Claire, recalled the first time she was asked to voice the character.
“It was silly at first, very silly, “she laughed. “But after the first and second episode, I really got into the character. Now when i read the character’s part from the script, i feel her. If she is angry, of course I sound angry too.”
Almost all the characters in the drama are played by SIBC staff.
‘Famili blo Hana’ is a 15 minute program set in the rural area. It centers around a man called Hana and his family, portraying life as it is in the village.
Mr Maka’a creates and produces the program every week.
It comes on the national broadcaster every Saturday night at 8pm. It is repeated at 7:45 am on Sunday, 7:40pm Tuesday and 8:15am on Wednesday.
The drama is going on its eight episode on the airwaves this week. You can listen to previous episodes on the SIBC Podcasts on the website.
