US-PH ‘Balikatan’ 2012 on Insider

In a rare opportunity, Insider will show what actually happens at the ‘Balikatan’ (shoulder-to-shoulder) 2012 between the US and Philippine troops held recently in an exclusive, insider story by TV5 news operations head DJ Sta. Ana tonight (May 3) on TV5 and Aksyon TV.

Join DJ and the Insider team as they brave the mountains of Tarlac and Palawan with the Hawaiian National Guards, US and Philippine Marines and Armed Forces of the Philippines to cover every aspect of the military exercise between the two countries.

This 10-day joint exercise involved military drills, civic action, humanitarian assistance and disaster response (HA/DR) work involving US and Philippine troops.

The mock search and rescue operations provided an exhilarating and awesome thrill for audiences as the troops encounter different challenges on trail. The Marines even showed high tech equipment and heavy machineries that they use on a daily basis with DJ even getting hands-on to some of these tools.

Taking advantage of this exclusive, first-hand coverage special to NEWS5, DJ gets to experience living like one of the troops in camps, running beside the military encounter in Palawan and witness how to rescue hostages during a time of crisis.

With over 20 years of extensive experience in the broadcast industry, the news executive is in-charge of the organization’s development and expansion of news-gathering and TV coverage.

Don’t miss DJ’s insider take on the ‘Balikatan’ 2012 this Thursday (May 3), 11:30pm (after Pilipinas News) on TV5; with a one-hour Producer’s Cut at earlier timeslot (7:35pm) over Aksyon TV (Channel 41 in Mega Manila, Channel 29 in Metro Cebu and Davao, Channel 1 on Cignal Digital TV and Channel 59 on Sky Cable).
