The editorial is written by director of Damascus Radio Ahmad Usseh, the prime propagandist of President Adib al-Shishakli, who played a monumental role in discovering Arab talent at Damascus Radio. Namely he was behind the promotion of the Lebanese diva Fairuz. Television eventually came to Syria during the union years with Egypt, in July 1960.
