At the beginning of 2007 four experts on educational television carried out some research on the relationship between pre-university education and educational television. This research aimed at showing the diverse situations regarding the «didactic progress of television» from the answers and comments of more than a hundred teachers of different pre-university levels from several regions of Spain. This paper tries to spread the results of the afore mentioned research to show the poor situation of educational television in Spain. It offers a brief account of diverse educational TV experiences around the world and makes a modest proposal for a new model of educational television that could be useful for teachers..
