Inuit Broadcasting Corporation Premiere Dates for Fall Schedule 2011

(September 8, 2011:  Iqaluit, Nunavut) Inuit Broadcasting Corporation is pleased to announce the following dates and times for broadcast of its regular weekly series beginning this week on APTN.

IBC is introducing two new series this year – Qanurli? and Ilinniq.   Qanurli? (What Now?)  is a youth program with comedy segments and focuses on current youth issues.  Qanurli? features some charming and delightful characters - Inuk Qablunaaq and Nipangi Suittuq.  Ilinniq targets the older audience and profiles a variety of people from all of Nunavut’s regions - elders, politicians and volunteers, and provides in-depth insight into who they are and how they came to be where they are in their life.  Featured in this series are Ollie Ittinuar, James Eetoolook, Natsiq Kango amongst others.

Takuginai is geared towards children 5-7 year olds, but is enjoyed by all ages.  The half hour program teaches Inuit values and plays a major role in promoting the Inuit language, as does all IBC programming.

Niqitsiat is a cooking show enjoyed by people of all ages.   Niqitsiat features the preparation and cooking of Inuit traditional foods – hosted  by the ever popular Rebecca Veevee.
