Fashions and Trends

Sponsored By:
     European Broadcasting Union / Union Européenne de Radio-Télévision

Are big reconstructions a temporary whim? Is the trend for "fake" archive, as a way to re-tell the past, growing? Is the cult of the presenter a bonus or hindrance? How can the fashion in one country work for the rest of the world? This session will discuss where history programming is going; whether the genre can sustain its popularity or whether the bubble is bound to burst. This session will set the trend for the rest of the Congress.
