The news bulletins are being carried on Channel 4’s website under the banner “North Korea Uncovered” and begin with the news from October 14.
“North Korea Uncovered: a rare chance to watch North Korean television news,” the caption for the first bulletin reads.
They are accompanied by other reports in the series including a look at the country’s first ski resort by Swiss journalist Marc Wolfenberger.
The daily newscast has been available online for several years through the China-based Uriminzokkiri portal and its associated YouTube channel. It’s also sometimes available via a Japan-based North Korean website, but is only available in the original Korean.
Channel 4’s season gives English-speaking viewers a great chance to sample the daily propaganda output that makes up the evening news broadcast on state television.
