By Frederick Philander WINDHOEK The first 13 episodes of the country's first television drama series is scheduled to be broadcast on prime time NBC viewing next month, it was announced in a press release this week. Titled, The Ties That Bind, the 26-part series is produced by Optimedia, a local film company that was short-listed with two other local film companies in the commission system of the NBC some time last year. A question mark still hangs over the budget for the 26-part series. Speculation is rife in the film fraternity that the amount allocated to the project can be in the vicinity of N$5 million, bearing in mind that an episode could cost as much as N$200??????'??
