Frankly Speaking -Watch Online via JumpTV

'Frankly Speaking' is an interview based programme aired on NTV Bangla. It is a refreshing effort to bring expatriates in Bangladesh who hold important positions or are somehow related to the development of the country, closer to the people. Frankly Speaking is the first English programme on NTV Bangla and is hosted by Nadeem Quader.

There are many diplomats or officials of important international organisations in the newspapers, but the common people seldom really get to know beyond what is written about them. Expatriates, on the other hand get to interact with only a handful of local people. Frankly speaking, provides a platform that allows expatriates to express their views and more importantly, answer questions related to Bangladesh, something that many viewers are interested in. The programme was first aired two years ago and started off with the first guest being Pakistan's foreign minister, Khursheed M Kasuri. Diplomats coming or leaving the country are also interviewed.

'Frankly speaking' is not a hard-hitting face to face interview programme where the interviewer brings the interviewee to his knees by jabbing him with unpleasant questions. But one or two less diplomatic questions are asked in order to get an honest view. One of his guests was British High Comissioner Anwar Chowdhury and he was asked about the bomb blasts, one of which almost killed him. He in his turn openly expressed his concern about the political bickering of the two women leaders of the country.

Occasionally Quader takes the show outside Bangladesh to get a feedback from people in other countries. Quader, who is the correspondent for Press Trust of India (PTI) and Research Associate of Reader's Digest, plans to travel to the SAARC countries for the upcoming Summit. The programme is produced by Monowar Shahadat.

Telecasted fortnightly on Tuesdays at 06:50 pm.
