Established back in 1992 TV BTR Nacional was the first Roma TV station world - wide that was broadcasting 24 - hour program a day. Over the years, the TV station has been developing and improving. Our primary goal has been to develop an informative structure that will serve for the media needs of Roma people in Macedonia. Today, our programming includes daily news, informative, educational, documentary and entertaining programs.
As a Roma TV station, our primary target audience is the Roma population, so the programming is mostly in Roma language, but we also broadcast program for the majority population produced and/or subtitled in Macedonian language. TV BTR Nacional has produced many different programs, such are: informative programs “Time of the Roma”, “Romany Spectrum”, and “Target”; educational programs “Speak Romany”, “Romany alphabet”, and “Do we know our rights and duties”; documentaries “Atom Ant”, “The life is cruel”, “Amalipe”, “Ramiz and Hamid Brothers”, “Trikolka”, “Kings of the Roma music”, etc. Among the other things, TV BTR pays particular attention to the preservation and promotion of the Roma tradition and culture. In this regard, TV BTR organizes many cultural events both on national and international level, such are: Roma Film Festival “Golden Wheel”, music event “Romany Folk Hit”, Roma Beauty Pageant “Miss Roma International”, children songs festival “Chavorikano Suno”, events on the occasion of holidays Vasilica and Erelez
