The Baha’i Faith in Papua New Guinea on EMTV

July 15, 2015, in Videos > Documentary, by

In this special episode of Olsem Wanem, a TV show on EMTV, a Papua New Guinean TV channel, they explore how the Baha’i Faith found its way to the shores of Papua New Guinea some 60 years ago.

“Olsem wanem” means “What’s happening?” and the program aims to hear the views from all those who live in Papua New Guinea in order to gain a greater understanding of issues facing ordinary Papua New Guineans and the things happening around them.

Hi Naysan

I really enjoy your posts on the blog, and download several of them. One in particular about The Baha’i Faith in Papua New Guinea on EMTV, interested me. I have a Bahai radio program in Macarthur, 2mcr 100.3 f.m. every two Sundays that goes from 4 to 6 p.m. and constantly look for material to play. Please let me know if there is a copyright on this video, and can I play it tomorrow? Much appreciated.

Best Regards

and happy fasting.

I really enjoyed watching this series. It is great to hear about the Baha’i Faith from people of different cultural backgrounds and seeing Baha’is in action in Papua New Guinea.
