Two Steps Backward: AIT

The Africa Independent Television (AIT) engaged reverse gear tonite, by going two steps backwards to repeat Episode 39 of the Gardener's Daughter telenovela. This has caused much anxiety among devotees of la Hija del Jardinero.

Speculations are rife that the AIT wanted to slow down her fast pace so that MITV could catch up with her. Another 'gardener' who called me from Kaduna, northern Nigeria, yesternite said it was sheer lack of dedication on the part of the AIT to have 'forgotten' that what she ought to have aired was Episode 42, and not the reverse gear they took lovers of the Mexican Soap Opera.

Yet, another source said that, MYTV, that holds the proprietary rights to the film in Nigeria, is desperately sourcing to get the remaining episodes 42 t0 180, which has not arrived yet to her hands. What ever be the case, my personal opinion is that AIT owes us an explanation for the 'reverse gear'. Don't take us for granted, don't take us for a ride, don't reduce our entertainment value on the altar of non-challance. You have over 300,000 enlightened and sophisticated viewers to account to.

We would watch out if the AIT would correct the anomaly by tomorrow, friday 20th October, 2006.

Keep Gardening....
