Oh, what a medium television can be as we have experienced during the last week! Direct tv. Cinema verite. I refer to the rescue operation of the 33 miners in Chile, even more emotional for me, who was in the country a couple of weeks ago. Films will come, the miners will be tempted to take part in loads of tv shows, books will be written, tabloid newspapers and tabloid tv companies will exploit them, we know that, but nothing compares to the broadcast of images from 700 meters underground and from over-ground – and respect for the men, who organised themselves so well down in hell and have decided NOT to talk publicly one-by-one to the waiting cameras. They have a spokesperson and he will talk. Another kind of reality television, authentic, truthful, dramatic, full of emotions and compassion.
