Island TV Radio Bureau

TVM has 20 bureaus throughout the atolls of the Maldives and this is the regional one for the north. It is mainly a radio facility with a desk and a laptop for the local TV reporter. They are one-person bands, reporting, shooting and editing their stories to feed into the bureau in Male.
