16. In addition to the promotion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, the Department organized its annual training programme for Palestinian media practitioners. Ten young television and radio journalists, including six women, participated in the 2005 programme from October to December 2005 and received skills training in radio programming and television production. Working under communications professionals in the Department, each was able to file stories and interviews on the Palestinian issue from Headquarters, offering their listeners and readers a perspective that would not otherwise be readily available to them. In its 10-year history, the programme has helped improve the skills of 96 Palestinian journalists.
