TRT GAP, belonging to the Turkish Radio and Television Corporation, has been established to enhance the recognition of The Southeastern Anatolia Project, abbreviated as GAP, on a rational ground which serves forming the necessary social, cultural and psychological environment in the region. Within this context, the Channel aims to meet the demands of those living in the East and Southeast Anatolia as well as inform them about the contributions resulting from the Project (GAP) to the region and the country at large.
TRT GAP’s programs are especially produced by paying attention to both the needs and peculiarities of the East and Southeast Anatolia, consisting education, culture, drama, music programs and news with commercials.
TRT GAP’s transmissions are realized through the same channel with the TRT 3 since 2001 (which broadcasts live footage of TBMM TV) on a time-share basis.
From 1989 to 2001 TRT GAP was broadcasting on TRT 2.
