Sergio Cabrera and William Ospina in conversation with Juan Carlos Pérez Flórez

History and Television

Cartagena 2010, 
The stormy relationship between the small screen and the history of Colombia has led to a shortage of history programmes on Colombian TV. Why does television pay so little heed to the country's past? Is it true that history is not strong enough to fight for the ratings against Miss Colombia contests and drug dealing? Experts Sergio Cabrera and William Ospina analyse the pros and the cons of a genre that was once crowned with laurels and now struggles to rise from its own ashes. Chaired by Juan Carlos Pérez Flórez.
