Hi All
Not wishing to teach my Grandmother to suck eggs (Spanish Anyone ?), but the advent of TDT is a real bonus for all the people out there who like there entertainment in English, instead of the native dubbing. On TDT most English programmes (Nature, films, series) are broadcast, with the original Audio track alongside, the Spanish one. OK a fair proportion are American programs, but films on 1,2,3,4,5, and 6 as well as Sony Entertainment and the Disney channel, of course the original Audio track may be in another language, but there are lots of English programs. Especially of note, are the Nature programmes, broadcast on TVE 2 from 4:00pm, which can be recorded with one of the modern TDT receivers and watched at a more convenient time. A TDT receiver fitted to the computer is also a great way to record, direct to the computer, especially if you have one of these Multimedia hard drives that let you watch Video direct to the TV, without having to burn to DVD or CD. Of course if you are in the Catchment are of ONO or Imagenio, your choice of Channels with English Audio increases enormously, Viajar, National geographic and Discovery channel to name but a few. Despite this I would recommend watching as many programmes as possible in Spanish, as it is a great way to improve your listening skills, but sadly there are few native programmes that are compulsive viewing, Apart from Cuentame and Amor in Tiempos revueltos ( according to Maria) and at the moment El Hombre y la Tierra and quite a number of good travel programmes, which pop up regularly.
I hope some of you find this useful
Regards
Dave

My favourite programme on TVE by a long way is Escarabajo Verde. We watch it online. Usually it's great, though I prefer geo-bio programmes to the eco-lifestyle ones to be honest.

Last weeks' episode on the truffle industry was fascianting. Going to do a blog post about it soon.

There's an archive here:

Hi Nick
Yes I forgot about Escarabajo verde, an excellent programme with an often diverse content, and of course this ability to watch on line, within a certain time frame is very useful, am using it at the moment to watch El Hombre y la Tierra, as 7:00 pm is a bit of a difficult time for me as we are usually having a stroll around then. Looking forward to more must see programmes
Regards
Dave

Thanks for that Dave, Id been hearing TDT for a while but never understood (or bothered, because id forget, to find out) what it meant.

Maybe a list of recommended Spanish tv programmes would be an idea  :noidea:
