A invenção da televisão revolucionária: A RTP durante o PREC (1974-1975)

Translated title of the contribution: The invention of the revolutionary television: The RTP during the PREC (1974-1975)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This article analyzes how the April 25 revolution, in 1974, impacted on RTP programming, in particular, the non-daily information programs produced by the Department of Political-Social Programs. These reflect the visions of the time about the nature and the mission of popular television and allow to characterize the process of the “invention of the revolutionary television”, created to respond to the information needs of the people identified during the PREC revolutionary context (1974-1975). This process, marked by the relations of force that dictated the guidelines of successive administrations and directories of information and programming of RTP, does not confine to the political field. It was accompanied by a broad discussion about the role of television journalism in the construction of Portuguese democracy and society.
