Burma was, from 1962 onward, a censorship nation with heavy handed control of the state run newspapers, radio and TV stations and now, obviously, they’re trying to control the flow of digital information as well (and falling short because VPN). CDs and DVDs from there often feature a “Board of Censorship” stamp. It is a rare step for the TV employees (not to say the other ministries mentioned here) to oppose the state.
