THE NET­WORK

SBS ONE, 8.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

THE Mohseni fam­ily – broth­ers Saad, Jahid, Zaid and sis­ter Wa­jma – re­turn to Afghanistan from Aus­tralia with a mis­sion to start the coun­try’s first in­de­pen­dent tele­vi­sion net­work. It is 2002 and Kabul has en­dured five years of ter­ror at the hands of the Tal­iban where all forms of me­dia were out­lawed. Os­car- win­ning pro­ducer Eva Orner tells the story of the Mohse­nis and the birth of TOLO TV, which has now grown into a ma­jor com­pany with 800 em­ploy­ees. The Net­work is an in­spir­ing story of suc­cess against the odds.
