This was one of the most watched programs. As the name suggests, this program presented a nice medley of Hindi film songs.Phool Khile hai Gulshan Gulshan FridaysInteresting program focussed on Bollywood. The anchor, Tabassum was extremely good at interviewing the celebrity guests.Sunday Hindi Movie This program was probably the most anticipated program of the week. In the days before the VCR, this was the only opportunity to watch a Hindi movie outside a movie theater.Samachar The Hindi news were scheduled everyday at 9pm.Batmya For many years, the Marathi news were set at 7:30pm. Famous news personalities included the likes of Bhakti BarvAmchi Mati Amchi Mansa This program was targetted for the farmers. It provided a lot of valuable informationas well as some entertainment.Chimanrao Ani Gundyabhau This was probably one of the first (if not the first) Marathi serials on Mumbai Doordarshan. And it was a classic. Gajra This was a weekly program focussing on a variety of small skits that were very well made. The program was light and funny, and was one of the stars of the week.
3Black & White TV daysWe had a 19 inch one channel Black & White TV, manufactured by EC /Crown TV..And in those days, they were expensive! I think in 1975, this model cost around Rs. 2800.Can you imagine Television programs for about 4 hours a day,with only onechannel to choose from? when telecast would start in the evening, there was some animation (Doordarshan Logo) that we watched many timeThroughout the 70s, the programming was limited to a few evening hours. There were no commercially produced shows. Essentially,majority of the programmingwas developed by the Mumbai Doordarshan Studios in Worli. There were some real good international programs as well. Cricket matches were one exception when programming was available all day. Infact my earliest memory of watching TV is the 1974 India England tour, when Tony Greg was the England captain.Aapan yanna pahilat ka?Harsha Bhogle made his first appearance on TV, hosting a Sports Quiz. Fredun De Vitre of Sports Roundup - Wyatyay!: i.e. Sorry for interruption!, Sundar Maze Ghar Suhasini Mulgaokar with her special hairstyle and smile!English News- Dolly Thakor,Hindi News Sarita Sethi, Kumud Mirani and later Salma SultanaMarathi news Smita Talwalkar, Charushila PatwardhanNeena Gupta in Hawkins ki siti baji ! , the garden vareli saris and RoopSangam 4Today there are 490 channels in India including a staggering 100 news channels, the most in the world. We had very few advertisements and models would become national figures, like Lalitaji of Surf and Priya Tendulkar, who would later get her own show. There was one ad of a girl in a bikini and that was for the soap Lyril. This ad was also shown in talkies.Every Wednesday night was a half-hour show called Chhaya Geet, later renamed Chitrahaar, which featured Bollywood songs. This was the biggest show on TV.51967Rank Title Notes 1. Upkar 2. Ram Aur Shyam 3. Farz 4. Hamraaz 5. Shagird 6. Jewel Thief 7. Milan 8. An Evening In Paris 9. Patthar Ke Sanam 10.
