ROCK, HOMEGROWN HITS HIGHLIGHT MTV RUSSIA-STYLE

MTV has made its television debut in Moscow and St. Petersburg with a mixture of Western rock, pop and homegrown Russian hits.

It was not the first time Russians could watch MTV, but Friday's debut marked the first time they have received it free and in their own language.

MTV Russia will be on the air 21 hours a day, with about 70 programs featuring some 7,000 music videos, show business and sports news. It also will air one hour of nonstop Russian music in prime time.
