After not having commissioned any significant programming from the independent production sector since 2008, the South African Broadcasting Corporation on 8 November this year released its 8th Request for Proposals Book.
The SABC has issued the following statement:
The SABC is proud to launch its 8th Request for Proposals Book, for the first time through the newly created Television Division.
