Television Around the World [electronic resource]: Cuba

Cuba's first television shows celebrated the island's carefree casino culture, but as the political regime changed, so too did the country's broadcast messages. This program tracks the evolution of Cuban TV and gives an overview of the programming it now offers. Clips from telenovelas and news, educational, and variety shows illustrate the diversity of Cuban TV, and snippets of sitcoms reveal that despite tight governmental control, pokes at authority are permitted under the guise of comedy. The video also addresses the heavy Chinese presence in Cuban broadcasting since China became the island's main economic support. Includes commentary from noted film critic Rufo Caballero.
