UGC awards for AVRC documentaries

By Our Special Correspondent

KOZHIKODE, JUNE 7. Two educational video documentaries produced by the Audio Visual Research Centre (AVRC), University of Calicut, won awards at the 16th UGC-CEC educational video competition held in New Delhi last week.

The documentary titled `Weeds — the biological invaders', which was adjudged the best on environment and development issues, focusses on Mikania-micarantha, the South African weed which has invaded large tracts of wastelands and outer areas of prime forests in South and Central Kerala. The documentary was produced and scripted by R. Sheji of AVRC.

The other award-winning documentary was a three-part series on the puppets of Kerala, which was chosen as the best series of the year 2003. The first part of the series deals with the shadow theatre of Kerala, the second with the strong puppets and the third part with `pava kathakali', the glove puppet of Kerala. Each of the episodes of the series was produced and scripted by T. Satheesh, A.I. Abdu Raoof and Syed Amjed Ahmed respectively.
