TO educate and to enlighten the youth ang goals ng veteran sports broadcaster na si Chino Trinidad sa kanyang pagbuo ng isang bagong cable TV programming na Pilipinas HD.
Ayon sa sports enthusiast who also has a penchant for trivial Philippine History, it’s high time that the youths of today be educated with the country’s rich cultural history.
Napansin kasi ni Chino na unti-unti nang nakakalimutan ng maraming kabataan ngayon ang magandang historical legacy ng ating bansa dahil sa pagdating ng modern digital age.
“Pilipinas HD will be the medium where stories of unsung heroes will be retold and highlighted.
“Pilipinas HD levels up Filipino viewing.
“We are at a crossroads in our history when we must seek to know and understand the past in order for us to move faster, higher and more effectively into the future.
“We need to tell our children the greatness and the nobility of being Filipino.
“We simply tell the truth as it deserves to be told, in the eyes of historians, experts and storytellers who researched, studied or saw recent history unfold,” diin pa niya.
Ni-launch ang Pilipinas HD noong nakaraang June 12 and it will broadcast free from June 16 to June 30.
“Please understand that this is not a purely business endeavor.
“Our higher goal is to build a nation of patriots who will work together for a better Philippines.
“We need to make future generations of Filipinos proud of our heritage.
“A country and people who know their past is better equipped to move forward,” sey pa ni Chino who worked as a sports reporter for more than 26 years bago niya naisipang pasukin ang ganitong klaseng TV programming.
Hindi naman daw maaapektuhan ang kanyang trabaho bilang sports broadcaster sa news program ng GMA-7 na “24 Oras” kung saan meron siyang sports segment na “Time Out.”
“They are very supportive sa gusto kong ito. They actually offered me a blocktimer spot sa GMA News TV.
“Pero I want to be independent. Mas masarap ang gano’n, eh. I want to do this on my own.
“I still have my job sa GMA News and Public Affairs. I just a signed a new contract with them recently.”
Kabilang sa mga shows na mapapanood sa Pilipinas HD ay ang mga docu-series na “Decoding Duterte,” “Duyan Ka ng Magiting” (Cradle of Noble Heroes), “Pamana,” “Filipiknow,” “Grid,” “Panatang Pilipino,” “Ugat ng Lahi” and “Storya ng Bayan.” (RUEL J. MENDOZA)
