“Moambe” News Program of First Channel of the Georgian Public Broadcasting (GPB) celebrates its jubilee today. “Moambe” turned 40 years.
A special reception is being held at the Georgian parliament on the occasion of “Moambe’s” jubilee. Davit Bakradze, Parliamentary Speaker is hosting current and former employees of the information service.

“Moambe” began broadcasting 10 years after viewers first saw images on their TV sets. On December 30, 1956, the TV studio, after several months of preparation, went on the air for the first time. The first TV airing lasted for 2 hours.

The First Channel broadcast news about Georgia’s capital and then the Georgian movie “Abezara.” Thus, the films relocated from cinema halls to TV screens initially in Tbilisi and soon afterwards across all of Georgia.
