Spanish TV during Franco educated children to be good citizens

23 diciembre 2014

Several children’s programs were aired during the Franco regime; however, they did not have their own programming. Children, otherwise known as young adults, could watch the television during a limited schedule, on one channel. For the first time, a study has analyzed 112 children’s programs broadcast between 1958 and 1975, concluding that the aim was to religiously and patriotically educate children; and later, focusing on the social and economical situation of the country.
