Discovering North Cyprus
The Bedestan in Lefkosa
By Engin Dervişağa…….
I am delighted to tell our worldwide readers that I am now producing in conjunction with Qossay Eleyan a new TV show for Bayrak Radio and Television Corporation which is called “Discovering North Cyprus” which will be a short English and Arabic language programme that features many of our fine historical places.
This show will be screened on Monday evenings from 19.30 – 19.45pm on BRT2 with a 7 minute introduction in English followed by Arabic.
For this weeks show on the 3rd October we will be visiting the ancient Bedestan (St. Nicholas Church) which is one of the main cultural heritage sites located within the northern part of the walled city of Lefkosa (Nicosia).
Since 2003, thanks to EU funds, UNDP-PFF, under the framework of Nicosia Master Plan, has initiated the studies, investigations and design for the restoration of the Bedestan (St. Nicholas Church). The restoration of the Bedestan (St. Nicholas Church) aimed to contribute to the revitalisation of the Selimiye Quarter, a focal point of the unique cultural heritage of the Walled City of Nicosia.
This fine building is now used for exhibitions, cultural events and much more and is a must on a visitors wish list.
I also produce the Vox Pop TV show which features interviews with many people living in North Cyprus and this is screened on BRT2 on Sundays at 15.oopm and again on Wednesdays at 11.00am If you wish you can also watch a number of my past Vox Pop shows which can be selected for viewing by clicking here ….
