Deutsche Welle's Urdu Service: Success Story with Your Contribution

Msg from Deutsche Welle Urdu Service

Dear Listener / User

The Urdu Service of Deutsche Welle, Germany's international radio and television station, is celebrating 45 years of its existence on Friday, Aug. 14.
Deutsche Welle started its Urdu broadcast on the same day 45 years ago in 1964.

Since then DW Urdu programmes have been reaching their countless listeners in South Asia and the rest of the world, for many years only by radio
and since many years also through internet. Today the Urdu Service of DW from the former German capital of Bonn is journalistically valued very
high by our traditional listeners and multimedia users from across the globe.

The Urdu team of Deutsche Welle wants to thank and acknowledge on this occasion the dedicated listeners and users who have contributed hugely
to the success of this 'Urdu broadcast from the heart of Europe' during the past so many years through their feedback.

We want to express our profound gratitude for hundreds of our listeners for their greetings on this occasion which they sent to us in their letters, phone calls, emails, voicemails and SMS messages. We also want to congratulate our Pakistani and Indian listeners home and abroad on the Independence days of Pakistan and India on Aug. 14th and 15th respectively.

We are sure, for a quick nostalgic journey through the 45 years of Urdu programme of DW, you will find the following multimedia presentation on the front page of our website really interesting:,,659,00.html?id=659

Thank you once again for your contribution towards our long journey together and with the best wishes and hopes of an even longer and more successful journey in the years to come,

With best wishes and very warm regards
