Comunicar Journal 25: Quality Television (Vol. 13 - 2005)

The television we want… if we really want what we say


Juan-María Casado-Salinas


The majority of the Spanish society is worried about the crisis of traditional values. They make television responsible of this situation and they claim deep changes to transform it in an active agent of social change. The author considers that television can assume that responsibility if all citizens support television giving his responsible agreement to the modifications that politicians are doing to the audiovisual media law of Spain. The article analyses those changes and the need of a clear conscience of the public-media administrators about their social compromise to develop the cultural and educative role of television.
