Famous Doordarshan songs

Long back in good olden days of Doordarshan, we used to have a program to help the farmers. This was called "Vayalum vaazhvum"..meaning, Farmfield and life.

The title music was composed and sung by none other than the great Tamil film music composer - Sri MS Viswanathan.
This song goes like this:
"Thaai nilam thantha varam, taavaram
Athu thazhaikka thazhaikka varumaaru yaavarum"

Similarly, another song from Doordarshan, which catches my fancy is about Male-Female Equality
"AaNaa PeNNaa poranthathingay
Athuthaan Ingu muthal kelvi…
AaNaa porantha sirippu enna
PoNNa porantha veruppu enna"

Some more songs on Doordarshan songs that I hold close to my heart:
1)      "Antha veenaikku theriyaathu
        Athai seithavan yaarendru" - Title song of Teleserial SAHANA
2)      The title music of Mahabharath
3)      Mile sur mera tumhara
4)      Junoon title song in Tamil. I particularly remember this line - "Pidivaatham theera pidivaatham vendum"
5)      We used to have this great Mango drink called "Maaza" (We still have it, but this is a re-launched product with a new refreshing taste - which is YUCK)…this particular advertisement was telecast in Doordarshan, where Ranjit Barot - film musician and ad jingles music composer - also stars in it…it was a fabulous piece of beats for the Maaza drink

Do you remember that song "Mujhko hai asha". It was very melodious and peaceful. Do you know where to find all these videos?
