FUTURE OF QUARTET
Since the beginning of QUARTET magazine we have broadcasted almost 230 premiere episodes. Approximately 900 reports, profiles and documentaries attracted the attention of several million of viewers in the four neighbouring countries. Topics inspired by the lives of ordinary people, success, troubles and their solutions, economy, education, science, culture, history, ecology, sport or various natural places of interest, these are the universal and timeless topics with the particular European character. It is mostly its thematic potential that enables QUARTET project to become a successful TV programme broadcast also on a weekly basis.
When considering concept of a new common Visegrad Four Television directors general of the public service televisions of V4 countries take QUARTET project as the main programme and example that such cooperation is possible. Connecting forces and financial sources is the way for further production and preparation of common concerts and entertainment programmes.
Social networks and social media as such are also gaining importance not only among the young viewers therefore we are trying to keep up with the times. Viewers do not have to call us anymore if they missed some information from live programme because now everything can be found in online TV archives, on our website or facebook. Last but not least International Visegrad Fund and its support is the future perspective of QUARTET project. Especially thanks to the personal meetings of creators and producers we have been able to improve the content and production of QUARTET magazine, solve troubles and even save the programme sometimes. Considering other workload we would not have been able to visit so many interesting places and personally verify the attractiveness of these places for our viewers.
To sum up the relevance of this programme was confirmed by the award of the Visegrad prize given by the ministries responsible for culture of V4 countries. It was the first time when a TV programme of all four countries was awarded this prize.
