Laura Anglès.- Televisión Española has started a new knowledge development programme so their employees can “work indistinctly” both in radio and television. The RTVE president, Leopoldo González-Echenique, has announced this as a response to the question formulated by Popular Party parliamentary Ramón Moreno.

“We are developing an important instruction task so that both RNE and TVE professionals can work in either of them” declared the executive, who pointed out that it was the first time direction and the worker’s representatives had agreed in seven years.

Asturias, Cantabria and Navarra have joined the 3 communities where TVE and RTVE share headquarters. Their objective is, precisely, to unite the two channels in space and content, in order to attain that “professionals of one and other means are able to produce for either of them, depending on their needs”. Echenique has proposed as an example the Danish television, the process of which lasted 8 years; period that, he anticipates, will be significantly reduced.

In the same declaration, the president has also mentioned the controversial retransmission of bullfighting. Before the inquiries made by Chesús Yuste, one of Izquierda Plural’s parliamentaries, and Olaia Fernández, Bloque Nacionalista’s deputy, Echenique has responded he considers bullfights as a good of cultural interest that has to be treated ordinarily. In this sense, he has also referred to the audience generated by this spectacle, 1,064,000 viewers in the last emission, and he has repeated that, according to the authorities in charge of supervising television content, its emission does not harm children.
