Glo-sponsored‎ TV Drama Series, Professor Johnbull, which comes‎ on air today at 8.30p.m on NTA Network, NTA International on DSTV Channel 251 and NTA on StarTimes, is focusing on gossiping and tale-bearing.

Titled Radio without Battery, the 4th episode of season 2 which dissects problems associated with gossiping and tale- bearing also counsels people on its repercussions.

"Radio without Battery promises a comprehensive dissection of the age-long habit of gossip and the inherent dangers and bad blood false alarm is capable of generating even among family members," Globacom said in a statement.

"As viewers of the series stay glued to their television sets to savour the weekly tonic, they will be confronted with the unpleasant consequences of the gossip mills, false alarm, tale bearing and rumour mongering," the sponsor of the social satire added.

Parading Bimbo Akintola who played the role of Ufoma, Churchill (Jnr. Pope Odonwodo), Flash (Stephen Odimgbe), Mai Doya, ( Funky Mallam) Etuk (Imeh Bishop) and Kanayo O. Kanayo, (Professor Johnbull)‎,  ‎the episode as explained by Globacom  "will no doubt jab our conscience as we  examine ourselves to see if at one time or the other, we have caused unnecessary acrimony in the society because of rumour peddling or inaccurate report of incidents."

Viewers should look forward to answers‎ to the following questions when the suspense-filled episode of Professor Johnbull‎ comes on air.  Was Flash shot as rumoured? Is Professor Johnbull capable of losing his cool when faced with unexpected family pressure? Is Ufoma mischievous or is she simply an illiterate? Does Jumoke really love Flash in spite of her pretenses?

Globacom urges viewers  to stay tuned to the television channels on Tuesday  to watch the interesting episode.

A repeat broadcast of Radio without Battery comes up on the same channels on Friday at the same time.
