Tve Catalunya premieres “Ara i aquí”, a current events debate programme produced by Secuoya Contenidos. Designed as a participative debate programme, wherein the topics that most interest Catalan society will be discussed, this format will be broadcast by the public channel on Friday evenings in the late night slot.
From a general topic of mainstream interest, “Ara i aquí” will present a debate between 5 collaborators and journalists in a single format. It will also include the testimonies of anonymous citizens who will go on the set to explain their experiences in first person. The programme launches on Friday 15th September with a very topical issue, in light of the controversial political panorama surrounding Catalonia's independence and after the attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils: tolerance towards those who think differently and if coexistence in Catalonia has suffered as a result of these recent events. These topics will form the backbone for a space where analysis and reflection can take place, which aspires to shed light on the sensibilities and points of view of its citizens.
“Ara i aquí” will be presented by Carlos Fuentes, a Franciscan monk and media figure who has a long history in leading similar formats in both Catalonia and on various state-broadcast channels. During the last two years he has presented CITA CON CARLOS FUENTES (A Date with Carlos Fuentes), a programme which enjoyed great success on the Murcian channel "7 Televisión Región de Murcia". It also addressed topics that most interest the citizens of Murcia, with the participation of experts and the general public.
