After long delays, Morocco's first Amazigh (Berber) TV channel
was launched last week. Initially, it is broadcasting six hours a day, and 10 hours a day at weekends, in the Tachelhit, Tarifit and Tamazight dialects.
I can't vouch for the quality of the programmes but nevertheless it's a very important step forward in recognising the country's cultural diversity.
