The SBS broadcasting service in Australia is planning to terminate the broadcasting of 6 radio programmes, one of them in the Bulgarian language. As a result, Bulgarians living in the country are organizing a petition to keep the programme.

More than 460 people have already signed it, Filli Ladgman, anchor of the programme and executive producer at SBS for 20 years said for the Bulgarian news agency BTA.

SBS broadcasts in more than 63 languages to cater for the different communities in the country. The Bulgarian-language programme has a history going back 45 years. Еvery five years SBS reviews the on-air programmes to decide which communities have priority. According to the official census, the number of Bulgarian-speaking persons in Australia is 2,800, Filli Ladgman comments. The ethnic community in the country should number at least 25,000 to have 1 hour of air-time on SBS.

The Bulgarian-language programme on SBS is from 7 until 8 PM on Friday.

Listen to the daily news from Bulgaria presented in "Bulgaria Today" podcast, available in Spotify.
